According to the GM, MINDENO's 2022 result depends on how enabling the environment was or how the lack of it paints a picture of how MIDENO faired. Annually, the management has made it a habit to create awareness at the beginning of every farming season.

MIDENO in their own way have made efforts to scale up production inline with the effects of the crisis that led to the abandonment of several farms in the region. The impact of the socio political crisis on the farming population has been termed unspeakable especially in the surburbs.

Despite these challenges, it is worth noting that the Northwest region has not ran into a food crisis yet, as farmers still put in efforts to farm and sell their products.

"For farmers in the surburbs to farm, feed the population, their families and raise income through some of their produce has been a dating task, Northwest is the breadbasket interms of agricultural production. Farmers are no less productive than when the crisis began. Their capacity remains undimimished despite what has happened. The Northwest hasn't ran Into food crisis yet", MIDENO's GM.

This was a similar worry for other staff but the GM responded positively saying the file was in process and that the request should be rewarding, befitting and well appreciated at the end of the day.
