Fazenda Maxi

National Production

Together we develop Angola

A Programme created in 2012 that establishes partnerships with producers, with the aim of developing national production and making the best national agricultural products accessible to the entire population.

"Fazenda Maxi" was created with the objective of reducing the difficulties faced by CND's food retail business in obtaining quality agricultural and livestock products, at prices accessible to all, in a consistent and sustainable manner, taking advantage of its means and instruments focused on the training and professional development of workers directly and indirectly linked to this activity.

The programme guarantees the disposal of products to Maxi shops, collecting and transporting them, while also providing technical advice throughout the production process and specialised training actions aimed at improving the quality and regularity of their production. The savings obtained by reducing the distribution chain are passed on to the final customer.

Within the scope of this programme, CND guarantees the technical follow-up of the producers, procurement, logistics and Quality and Food Safety of the products, allocating it a fleet of refrigerated vehicles with a capacity for 8 tonnes, specially developed transport boxes and operational support from its central structure, including the company's modern distribution centre located in Morro Bento.
