Red Farms - Crop Production
The Red Farms has initiated a Crop Farming project where
the Company has partnered with local farmers in various
places to start crop production and share in the profit. Red
Farms will function and operate as a Cooperative Business
Participation Management Farming Project co-opting
emerging Farmers into the various Management positions
available on the project and having a stake in profits as delegated to each Management position
Profit distribution is determined by the Management post
held by the participant in the Farming Structure as a percentage point of the profits earned throughout the year,
determined on a quarterly audit basis by way of a bonus
drawn against the Farming projects profits earned.
The intention of this program is to encourage local communities to participate in farming to boost local production of
crops such as vegetables and maize. This program will also
assist communities to gain skills through the Red Ants
The Red Farms project has also been adopted
by the City of Johannesburg in collaboration
with the Mayor Parks Tau.
The City of Johannesburg decided to get involved in this project because of the value it
will bring to the residents of the metro and
Province at large. Produce from these farms
will be procured to help and assist the needy
and for the Schools Feeding Programs.
