Local Vegetables and fruits have high nutrients content and are very suitable for a healthy lifestyle. This was shared by the Director of Agriculture and Agrifood in an interview during the SKH Kampung Mata-mata Local Crop Produce Promotion.
The Agriculture and Agrifood Department says local vegetables and fruits are very fresh because they are delivered directly to the supermarkets within 24 hours of being harvested from the farms. Local farm produce also do not use preservatives and are the best choices for individuals who are sensitive and allergic to them. On the economic side, each Brunei dollar spent on local farm produce will generate double income for the country's economy and every buyer, including consumers of local farm produce will in one way or the other contribute to national economy.
