The majority of the family farms we work with are owned and operated by socially-disadvantaged farmers that produce enough to support their families, steward the soil, and leave a secure legacy for their children. Because many cannot access mainstream distribution channels, Mandela Produce Distribution works to support their financial stability by linking them to an emerging urban retail base.
