Hydroponic Tomato Farms
Lindon Corporation provided a full scope of transaction advisory services to the KZN Department of Economic Development (DEDT) for the establishment of ten hydroponic (tunnel) farms in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Services included the completion of a feasibility study and business plan, project management, supply chain management, contracting, payments to and management of sub-contractors, training and initial supervision of beneficiaries.
The end result was the speedy delivery of a rural-based infrastructure project that employed over 85 people during construction and 8 people permanently.
The model used for implementing this project is recommended for other local economic development projects.
