FairWild Accredited Pelargonium for Afrigetics
We are excited to announce that our company, Afrigetics, has recently attained FairWild certification for our wild-harvested Pelargonium roots. This certification is a significant milestone for us as a company, and we are proud to be recognized for our commitment to sustainable and ethical sourcing practices.
At Afrigetics, we have always been passionate about promoting health and wellness through natural products derived from African medicinal plants. Our focus on using only sustainably harvested wild herbs has driven us to source our raw materials from trusted rural suppliers who share our values. This commitment to quality and sustainability has led us to pursue the FairWild certification.
So, what exactly is FairWild certification? FairWild is an international standard that promotes the sustainable use of wild plants and animals. It is a globally recognized certification scheme that ensures the social, environmental, and economic sustainability of wild-harvesting practices. The certification is awarded to companies that meet specific criteria related to sustainable wild harvesting, fair trade, and conservation.
Our Pelargonium roots are wild-harvested in South Africa by experienced harvesters who follow strict guidelines to ensure sustainability. We work closely with the government and are one of only two companies in South Africa with a bioprospecting permit that allows us to harvest and trade in pelargonium roots. This permit ensure a royalty is given to communities for their traditional plant wisdom and that funds are contributed to the chieftains to support their communities, providing fair compensation for their work and contributing to local projects that benefit the environment and the people who live there.
By attaining FairWild certification, we are proud to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing practices. We believe that it is essential to protect our natural resources for future generations, and we are committed to doing our part to make a positive impact on the environment and the communities we work with.
In conclusion, we are thrilled to have attained FairWild certification for our wild-harvested Pelargonium roots. This certification is a testament to our commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing practices. We will continue to prioritize quality and sustainability in everything we do, and we look forward to sharing more about our journey with you. Thank you for supporting Afrigetics, and we hope you will continue to enjoy our products with confidence in their quality and sustainability.
