According to Alexandre, the  investment in this sector aims essentially to supply the national market and participate actively in the process of diversification of the economy and reduction of imports.

In addition to pig breeding, the farm also has a cattle breeding area  with a total of 1,500 heads.

From 2016 to date, the farm generated 400 new jobs, mostly for Angolans, having a cultivated area of 2,000 hectares with a feed and cassava factory.
