Bananas Bring Top Money at Farmer’s Market

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

When we took our banana bunches to market last week, the bunches brought top dollar. FAIM plants are performing beautifully for our customers and our own farm. Our tissue culture plants are clean, healthy and out performing other plants.    FAIM bananas at market in Rwanda

We are working towards food security for all of Rwanda.

While we are booking plants for the B planting season, we do have a limited number of banana, patchouli, tamarillo and passion fruit plants still in stock ready for farmers to plant.

Plants for Food Security in Production for Rwandan Farmers

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Plants for food security in production for Rwandan farmers. With majority of the banana plants diseased, majority of fruit production is currently being imported. Forestry and Agricultural Investment Management (FAIM Africa) is propagating through tissue culture healthy disease-free plants for Rwandan farmers as well as all sub-Saharan countries and the Middle East.

Production included¬†cooking bananas Injagi and Imporogoma, as well as Fhia 17 and Fhia 25 which are bananas primarily used for beer and desert. Available for shipping to areas outside Rwanda is FAIM’s own Sugar Baby Apple Banana, a banana that produces juice so sweet will have you doubting that is from a banana at all!
