FarmGate was founded by Ganza Justus who holds a degree in Agriculture Economics and Agribusiness; and is passionate about agriculture and its dynamics.
He started his career in agro-based firms, the latest being providing solar powered irrigation pumps in Rwanda, where he worked with local farmers and cooperatives. Due to high dependency on rainfall, Justus realised farmers only cultivated for 2 seasons over 3.
The third season is suitable for vegetables and most likely to give more income within a short period when you have irrigation equipment.In 2017, Justus approached agribusiness experts for practical skills acquisition and started his first production of chili and passion fruits as a farmer and supplier for an exporter in Rwanda.
In 2019, he registered – FarmGate and started exporting chili to Europe. The company has experienced and maintained good growth making agribusiness more attractive to youth through knowledge sharing, innovation, and technology.
