Carache communal farmers set themselves up as a model of production and distribution of food to the country.

This Wednesday, from the mountains of Trujillo State, specifically in the Mesa Arriba sector of the Carache municipality, the farmers organized at the Chavez and Bolivar Commune presented an extraordinary experience of production and distribution of food to the country, in which, together with the People to People Plan, they seek to eliminate the chain of intermediaries of the capitalist market.

In a televised contact with President Nicolas Maduro, in his usual Productive Wednesday, Trujillo Governor Gerardo Marquez highlighted that this locality produces 27 strategic items that go directly from the producer to the consumer, eliminating the production chain and distributing the production without intermediaries.

Mesa Arriba is a 100% agricultural community that produces 27 short-cycle crops three times a year: onions, onions, cabbage, zucchini, tomatoes, corn, garlic, cilantro, sweet potatoes, celery, lettuce, beets, carrots, eggplant, cucumbers, potatoes, and parsley, among other crops. It also produces coffee and has the potential for raising cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs.

Antonio Bracamonte, a spokesman for the Chavez and Bolivar Commune, emphasized that by gradually eliminating the chain of intermediaries, the costs of the products are reduced so that they are more affordable at the points of sale in the main cities of the country. At the same time, it benefits the consumer because the products arrive fresher and in better conditions.

In coordination with the People to People Plan, the producers of Carache have been able to strengthen their productive capacity, generating links with other producers that allow them to exchange strategies and tools to optimize their production.

Daniglis Velasquez, municipal president of this plan for the production, distribution, and consumption of agricultural products, explained that the association is in charge of supplying food to children in educational institutions together with the School Food Program (PAE).

We are in charge of buying the food directly and taking it to the schools, avoiding the so-called “Rosca,” giving economic strengthening to the communities,” he added.

For his part, the Vice Minister for Communal and Social Organization and Participation of the Ministry of People’s Power for Communes and Social Movements, Cesar Carrero, highlighted the cohesion and innovation of the People’s Power to overcome the effects of the illegal blockade imposed on Venezuela.

“The people have been overcoming obstacles, inventing new organizational methods to move forward […] With this perfect articulation, we will continue strengthening the People’s Power and prevail,” he added.

During the event, President Nicolas Maduro praised the productive spirit of the farmers of Carache, “which has arisen from the heroic resistance against the criminal sanctions of imperialism; the spirit of moving forward and taking forward something that belongs to all of us: Venezuela, our Homeland.”
