Our project Organics4Zim trained a total of 3,000 smallholder and wild plant collector families for EU certification of organic products in 2022 with the local partner Organic Farming Academy (OFA).
1,500 of the participants were already successfully certified by external inspectors from ECOCERT in November 2022 and can now export their products.
Meanwhile, interest has also been expressed from Zimbabwe’s neighbouring countries to participate in the project. In February 2023, for example, OFA will for the first time conduct a training course for employees of a private company in South Africa.
It is with great pleasure that we observe that ecological sustainability is gaining importance in more and more companies!
