Potato farming project was launched by the Southern Highlands Provincial Government to the people of SHP.
The SHP Governor, Hon. William Powi, allocated K2 million each to five (5) districts to help local farmers plant potatoes and supply them to the Pangia chips factory.
The chips factory currently requires five container shipments every week and the demand is being met by the other provinces in the meantime.
The onus is on all Southern Highlanders to stop working for others in plantations outside SHP and move back to their respective provinces to plant and supply.
