biore Foundation: bioRe Tanzania Ltd

White gold on the black continent


 “We believe that sustainable organic farming is the right means for small farmers to find a way out of poverty.” Niranjan Pattni, CEO bioRe® Tanzania

bioRe® Tanzania Ltd, another company under the umbrella of the bioRe® Foundation, was founded in 1994. Its main objectives are to considerably improve soil fertility, to turn farms into viable organisms and to develop water management as water is a resource to be handled with great care, in particular in Africa.

Furthermore, farmers are given a premium on the conventional market price and a purchase guarantee, both of which are designed to establish long-term financial security. bioRe® Tanzania supports farmers in their efforts to convert to organic production and to improve on farming methods.
