The single biggest factor for success in the mushroom business is adequate training. Growing mushrooms is easy, as long as you understand and respect their needs. This is why we offer all our growers one complimentary visit and on-site training.
We also offer ongoing assistance in the field. Our outreach specialist visits our growers regularly and at no cost to them, to monitor progress, offer troubleshooting when needed and ensure continuous improvement of their operations. Our goal is to help our customers be profitable.
We also offer classroom-setting training, for a fee. This is well suited for larger groups, individuals who want a more comprehensive understanding of the business and for organizations who plan on training others in the field.
Education and capacity development is important to Kigali Farms if we hope to see the consumption of mushrooms contribute to the fight against food insecurity and malnutrition. Our company hopes to see knowledge and training of mushroom production spread throughout Rwanda so we can contribute to the country in achieving better welfare for everyone.
