PhytoTrade is focused on commercial success and socio-economic development. We have a commitment to biodiversity conservation, rural development and the equitable development of value chains for natural plant ingredients sourced from Southern Africa’s rich plant biodiversity.
We have a pipeline of more than 30 species and multiple market opportunities. We will partner and collaborate with funders, investors, commercial enterprises, communities, government agencies and other public and private initiatives.
We will develop and exploit innovative technologies to add value in processing, and will support the development of consumer products and brands.
PhytoTrade is committed to sustainable development and the embrace of clean energy in its operations and partnerships.
We will seek impact investment and financing based on a robust evaluation of commercial value. We will prioritise projects which deliver a commercial return while creating jobs and supporting socio-economic transformation and development.
PhytoTrade will facilitate public and private financing of the biotrade sector.
