How We Delivery on Major Returns
Conventional agriculture depletes soil nutrients through plowing and intensive use of chemical inputs. Poor soil quality impacts fertility, the environment, and carbon sequestering, while impoverishing local populations as they become increasingly reliant on expensive external inputs.
HORUS Impact and its local subsidiary in CAR SIAD-CA (Société des Industries Agricoles Durable-Centrafrique) uses Regenerative Agriculture to deliver high yields, while minimizing inputs and regenerating the richness of the soil. We build self-reliance of local producers, while we increase community health and education.
A profitable social impact project
Regenerative Agriculture guarantees high rates of profitability, which creates opportunities for self-sustaining social impact that delivers tangible community value while preserving the interests and integrity of the company. Our 20 Ha pilot project, initiated in CAR in 2019, has already demonstrated how our innovative practices preserve land and guarantee efficiency by replacing chemical inputs with the ecological service of fertile soil. Implemented in collaboration with the community in Moungoussa, dozens of jobs have already been created, and after just 2 years, the project was able to regularly allocate resources to education, health and local orphanages.
Production that is relevant to local needs
Horus Impact is now launching production on more than 2000 Ha in the Pissa region, with plans to expand to more than 5000 Ha for three primary product types:
Cereals, corn, soybeans, beans to fulfill local consumption demand in CAR
Traditional roots, such as cassava, which are processed into flour that is in high demand for local, national and sub-regions
Extremely high added value products, such as perfume essences for export to world markets.
Our leadership team of world-class experts ensure highly professional execution.
