Brigitha Faustin is the managing director of OBRI Tanzania, a company that manufactures edible oils.
“As I am operating in the agri-food space, empty shelves can be frightening but empty fields would be devastating. The pandemic has brought fear to most of us. We depend on small scale farming and the fear is that if we skip this planting season then there is a great chance that the pandemic might not kill us but rather hunger. We are challenged to be more innovative to be able to survive during and after this Covid-19 crisis.”
