Organic Farming in West Africa

Biotropic GmbH secures its supply chain through establishing training initiatives in innovative agricultural technologies.

Organic Farming

Biotropic GmbH is an association of several organic food traders whose range of goods covers a large variety of organically grown fruit and vegetables from around the globe. To secure ongoing sources of imports that meet the strict organic standards, Biotropic formed a development partnership together with sequa and the Abobo Adjamé University in Côte d'Ivoire. This has resulted in the creation of a new university department for innovative agricultural technologies and organic cultivation practices and in extension services for farmers on site to educate them about ecological cropping methods.
