USDA confirms that about 23 million people suffer from food-related ailments like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity because they have insufficient access to affordable and healthy food. One of the human daily needs is food, we eat to grow, we eat to live. The entire existence of humanity is dependent on what we eat.
The level of poverty in Africa and incessant hike in the price of food items has made a majority settled for produce without minding how healthy they are – this unhealthy eating lifestyle has forced many to an early grave while some others spend on medical care.
A lot of people desire to develop a healthy eating habit but lack the basic knowledge of where to get it. Some know where to get food items with high quality and better taste but lack the buying power, while some feel it doesn’t matter where the farm produce comes from, once it is available in the market, they just go for it and buy.
The ignorance, poverty, and non-challenge attitude are responsible for the food-related diseases found in the about 23 million people discovered by USDA. You are either eating to live well or eating to break down. The result you get from the food you eat is dependent on many factors among which are;
- Soil factors, the available nutrients in the soil where the plant is grown, soil PH, etc.
- Weather and Climatic Factor – rainfall, temperature, and light intensity.
- Exposure to pests and diseases
- Post-harvest and Storage Handling
All of these need adequate attention to reduce the risk of being infected with food-related ailments. When you buy these products grown in a careless environment at a cheaper rate, you stand the chance of paying heavily for medical care to restore your health. Why not embrace the new way of farming that allows producing to be grown in a controlled environment which in return brings forth better quality, nutrients, and taste.
THE NEW WAY OF FARMING THAT GUARANTEES SAFETY
Hydroponic Greenhouse Farming – this is a method of growing produce in controlled environments where all the necessary minerals needed for plant growth are provided directly to the plants, making them more nutritious and better-tasting.
HOW THIS TECHNOLOGY WORKS
- Hydroponic Irrigation system delivers nutrients directly to the plants
- A controlled environment offers protection from environmental impacts, pests, and diseases
- No pesticides or harmful chemicals
- Best quality of seeds
WHY AFRICANS SHOULD EMBRACE THIS
Hydroponic Organic Greenhouse produce has more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants than their conventionally-grown counterparts, and people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives may find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. Some of the benefits of this new way of farming include;
- Highest Quality Produce
- Best Flavour & Taste
- Highly Nutritious
- No Residual Toxicity
- Consistent Supply Round the Year
The traditional way of farming is popular in Africa and the result is evident, a lot of people will keep spending their earnings to manage their health if we fail to embrace a new way of farming.
At Aldelano Organic Foods, we have deployed this new technology in Africa to make hydroponic organic greenhouse produce available, accessible, and affordable for AFRICANS.
