Fruit & Vegetables
Why does Livingstone focus on horticulture products? The production of horticultural commodities has a potential to alleviate poverty, meet human nutritional needs and stimulate economic growth.

Healthy people are more capable of participating in economic and social activities, and thereby improve their wellbeing and standard of living. Integrating a variety of healthy foods into diets can minimise the potential loss of human cognitive and physical abilities as a result of micronutrient deficiencies.

Horticultural crops, which include fruit, vegetables, nuts, herbs, medicinal plants and ornamentals, represent a wide range of species that can be grown in diverse agro-ecological zones throughout the year. Introducing a diversity of horticultural crops increases the resilience of agricultural system, promotes ecological sustainability and contributes to the local economic growth.
