The sustainable development goals provide Hortinet a powerful framework to engage in social responsibility.
We use gravity-fed irrigation systems to improve water usage and reduce fuel use. This approach builds a sustainable agricultural value by avoiding commonly high post-harvest losses and reducing input costs.
We believe social responsibility and commercial interests go hand in hand and that they are strongly intertwined. This is why the core philosophy of our business is based on an Eco-Inclusive model
Using our Eco-Include business model we are creating market opportunities for smallholder horticulture farmers in Malawi and are working to reach 5,000 farmers, 70% of which will be women, and improve their incomes by 75%.
