Overall comment

Overall comment
Horta Boa has leased from the District Government five 50 m3 (total 250 m3) cold storage containers for the storage of potatoes (the price is 50% higher at Christmas, two months after harvesting) and of seed potatoes for the next growing season. Smallholders can also store there for a fee, but this is not yet happening much in practice. Horta Boa is interested to provide more storage and packing house services to smallholders
