The contract has been initiated to extend awareness on the use of eCommerce across food markets, promoting digital inclusion in rural areas by guaranteeing a sustainable market for smallholder farmers as well as promoting affordable healthy lifestyle associated with consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Speaking to the media fraternity; the Founder of Food Bundles, Dioscore Shikama explained why Bruce Melodie was selected as brand ambassador for the deal estimated at Rwf1 billion but did not provide deeper details into circumstances under which the company and the artiste will ensure a win-win cooperation.
“We wanted to make an extra mile bringing extra-ordinary things in the Rwandan music industry. This is a real and fair deal,” he revealed.
According to Shikama, Food Bundles has been working with 2000 farmers and plans to increase the number 100 times.
