Through his exploits as a farmer, he has created Melo Foods, which packages some of the goods from his farm.
We need to add value to what the soil produces. But most importantly we need continuous value creation to open the world of endless possibilities. Our economy lies in the hands of agriculture. The Agric revolution begins with you. Happy farmers day. 🙏🏿 #melofoods pic.twitter.com/5uFbtuDmaj
