F.E.E.D. e.V. is supported by many local agents and partners. The following deserve particular mention:
The German company SUNfarming GmbH, of which Peter Schrum is the founder and principal shareholder, created the foundation for the activities of the non-profit association F.E.E.D. with its own financial investment and in the context of the company’s own social engagement. As part of this, F.E.E.D. makes use of the training centre and the Food & Energy Plant infrastructure at the North West University campus in Potchefstroom, and so funds donated to can be used for the training course and equipment costs of participants. Furthermore, SUNfarming supports F.E.E.D. by means of its extensive network of decision-makers in the areas of business and politics, in Germany and on site.
