Organic Africa’s wild harvesting and on-farm processing of herbs and spices using solar drying units brings value addition to remote rural areas in a way that has never been done before by commercial entities. Our focus on the organic production, processing and marketing of high value certified crops means that small-scale farmers can escape the vicious cycle of heavy reliance on imported inputs, unsustainable methods of farming, volatile produce markets, low producer prices, and lack of marketing. The company’s locally engineered mobile distillation unit is unique, being specifically adapted to the needs of small-scale producers, as it goes from rural community to community, to extract the oil from their crops. The income generated from the sale of partner farmers’ organic produce, provides them with a vital cash surplus for such necessities as food, school fees, bus fares, and medicine. In this way, participating farming communities benefit from a marked improvement in soil fertility and thus food security, as well as benefiting directly from the sale of their produce at favorable world prices, through the links Organic Africa offers them to international fair trade markets.
