bioRe to generate added value for cotton farmers

Apr '10
Remei AG is pleased to present new Cotton Times. In addition, we have news about encouraging developments in Tanzania. With the launch of FAO (Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations) a project focusing on a communal effort to improve the soil fertility training has been started.

This involves an innovative approach to methods of participation and an exchange of ideas with selected bioRe farmers. For bioRe Tanzania Ltd. the concept of coopration was a welcome initiative since it is building on and developing already existing activities. The aim is to improve the practices and training methods in order to generate added value for the farmers' families as well as for bioRe employees.

Our main concern in India, at present, is the risk of having contaminated cotton due to genetically modified seeds. Therefore, we have stepped up our measures to control seed procurement. Currently, we are even planning our own seed cultivation to be used as of the 2011/2012 season. We hope to be able to give you positive news about this quite soon.

At this time, samples from our new fashion lines are being selected, and demand seems to be picking up again. We are pleased about that, of course, because the last six months have been extremely difficult.

bioRe is not only a synonym for organic cotton, it also stands for an ecological value chain as well as our social commitment in the field of organic cultivation. Currently, we are operating 17 schools with more than 600 pupils. The next challenge is to prepare the first transfers of children from our schools to regular public institutions. We are optimistic about being able to manage this important step.
