Ecocert has a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy to be a responsible actor for a sustainable world. Every three years the Ecocert Group takes on five projects, located anywhere in the world and voted in by Ecocert staff, that contribute towards the sustainability of the community where the project is situated. These projects are then supported by Ecocert for the given three years. All Ecocert offices are encouraged to contribute to a project within their community that contributes to the sustainability on an environmental or social level. Ecocert Southern Africa found out about the Devon Valley School’s vegetable garden and discovered that there was a lack of support in maintaining it. Devon Valley School is a no pay school and the children that attend the school receive a meal every day. In the past the vegetable garden substituted the meals made at the school. Ecocert Southern Africa has taken it upon themselves to help support the school in getting the garden up and running to produce healthy, nutritious food for the school children. A request went out to all Ecocert clients for support of donations to this project. Atlantic Fertilisers promptly and enthusiastically asked if they can be part of the project and to donate fertiliser to give the growing plants much needed nutrients. We are very happy to have them onboard and we look forward to working with them long term on this project.
