Innovative agriculture to create reliable income for local communities.

Through a joint venture we have created ‘Orga Earth’, a cactus farm project which will produce cosmetic bio oil for use in anti-ageing products globally. It will also produce biogas which can be used as an alternative to natural gas for cooking purposes. The project will ensure a stable and sustainable income for populations which are extremely vulnerable to climate change. Moreover, the initiative will empower around 1,000 self-employed Malagasy women as part of our commitment to improving job opportunities for women.
