Commercial Large Farms

The Commercial Large Farms Programme (CLFP) is an initiative of the Ministry of Food Production wherein the State partners with private agri-investors in a public-private arrangement to establish Large Commercial Farms in Trinidad. These farms normally average between 100 acres – 300 acres in size and are situated mainly on former sugarcane lands. One of the major goals of the programme is to attract and engage a cadre of agri-entrepreneurs, who possess agri-business acumen and private capital, into the agri-food sector.

Objectives

The Commercial Large Farms Programme (CLFP) was developed to fulfill the following objectives within the supply side of the agricultural sector:-

  1. To increase efficiency and productivity in the sector through economies of scale and rapid increase in the acquisition and utilization of new technologies;
  2. To provide an adequate, reliable and high quality supply of raw material to service the agro-processing and food manufacturing sectors;
  3. To facilitate the transfer of new technologies to the small farms sub-sector;
  4. To increase the quantity, quality and reliability of domestic food supply thereby stabilizing domestic food prices and ensuring adequate supplies of nutritious food is available to the population at affordable prices;
  5. To enhance the competitiveness of the export sub-sector; and
  6. To support the need to increase national food production and improve our food and nutrition security status.
