When we started our journey more than 20 years ago, our mission was to bring more affordable generic pesticides to the Philippines. At that time, the market was dominated by multi-national companies while China was raising its quality standards to eventually become the largest supplier of synthetic pesticides in the world.
We were one of the pioneering companies to successfully register several generic pesticides from China using our own data which enabled Filipino farmers to enjoy lower costs with the same performance levels as international branded products. Today, the Philippine market offers farmers many choices of suppliers and local brands of synthetic pesticides.
As we move further into the 21st century, sustainable agriculture and food security are important issues concerning every nation and we will play our part in facing those challenges in the Philippines.
Our focus is to develop environmentally friendly pesticides which are derived from natural sources and leave no chemical residue whilst doing no harm to beneficial insects, and offer the same performance as synthetic pesticides. And although these goals may appear too good to be true, we have already successfully introduced such products to major banana plantations in the Philippines, where they are being used commercially. Our claims are supported by data which has been independently generated and confirmed. Most of all, these benefits are being delivered whilst offering good economic value.
We will also introduce new nutritional products which will increase yields and offer better-value solutions to farmers who have long relied on 20th century commodity fertilizers which are not always friendly to the environment.
Moreover, we will also explore ways in which we can reduce or off-set our carbon footprint.
Since our humble and admittedly not-so-green beginnings, we are now on a mission to make sure we don’t damage our planet so much by growing the food that we need whilst maintaining our daily food quality but with lower chemical residues. And by the way, we hope to inspire and help the communities who do all the daily hard work to make sure we have food on the table every day. They really deserve better rewards and our continued gratitude and support!
