The robots replace scarce labour and create significant cost benefits, enabling farms to scale up more quickly. The current market penetration of JOZ products offers scope for international growth and the ambition is to accelerate this growth by tapping into new markets and launching new and innovative products. Rabo Participaties will join as majority shareholder to help us achieve this.
