Proteas Centralised Contract Farming Model
In the beginning Zimflora supplied planting materials and inputs. Fertilization and chemical requirements are low, and farmers now source their own. Zimflora provides all packaging materials.
In the beginning Zimflora provided technical knowhow. This support is no longer required since the crop is relatively easy to grow.
In the beginning Zimflora had exclusivity on all sales. Now, in addition to Zimflora, the farmers supply their own local markets and a limited amount of export. Zimflora collects stems from centralised collection points, sorts them for export or local market, transports to Harare airport and arranges export & sales
