“We are incredibly excited about the opportunities for validating sustainable production across South Africa. This programme is designed to empower producers to demonstrate their positive farming practices and capture a meaningful share of a market currently dominated by producers overseas. Through our graduated training and implementation programme we will build important skills in the region and create jobs which were previously outsourced. This initiative has tremendous potential to strengthen the market for independent, sustainable producers, and we are proud to lead it.”
