How It All Works
The refined pyrethrum pale is marketed and sold to markets in Africa, USA and Europe. Current plans include diversifying exports into Asian, Canadian and South American markets. Horizon SOPYRWA also supplies local manufacturer Agropharm Africa Ltd with pyrethrum pale, which it further processes into organic, powder and liquid pesticides. This local value addition has resulted in eco-friendly products, formulated for powerful pest control with minimum impact on the environment.
Additionally, organic pesticides benefit farmers financially because premium prices are paid for organic produce. There is finally value addition through a sister company called Agropy that manufactures organic pesticides in a nearby factory in Musanze Town. For more information, Visit www.agropharmafrica.com
Horizon SOPYRWA is mindful of its environmental obligations, and has strategically integrated environmental and social considerations into its business operations. The company is currently pursuing ISO 14,000 certification, thus adhering to international standards related to environmental management.
