HOW ARE WE
Agriculture is two to four times more effective for poverty reduction than any other sector according to the World Bank.
This is especially true of the medicinal cannabis sector which is ideally suited for the facilitation of local economic development.
MGMC’s investment in the medicinal cannabis industry signifies our pursuit of an ecologically sustainable harvesting and utilization program, in a manner which is considered to be in the best interest of both local and global populations.
Our focus on capacity building in cannabis farming provides us with a platform from which to pursue the development of this indigenous resource.
This is achieved through the establishment of a system of rural community based primary producers.
Production centres are broken down into farming cooperatives which afford the company access to the agriculture communities in each country, allowing us to maintain a presence throughout the region.
MGMC empowers rural economically disadvantaged communities by providing them with access to, and support from, our quality assurance teams and invaluable training programs. Our training programs recognise the existing knowledge of the local labour force, developed from growing similar crops in the region historically, and aim to build on them to unlock the potential of rural communities.
The creation of an abundantly skilled local labour force, educated further in good farming practices, creates an employment chain with multiple contact points for local economic injection. MGMC plans to employ as many as 10,000 farmers across the 6 countries in which we will be operating in.
Beyond the direct employment and economic injection that this brings, the skills our workers develop can be used to more effectively grow crops and ensure food supply sustainability in the regions.
African Honey Conservation
MGMC Group is committed to the ideals of conservation and community action. This commitment extends to our associated projects, including the protection of indigenous bee populations and the harvesting of the natural organic African honey they produce.
The decline of bee populations in recent years has had measurable and devastating effects on
both people and ecosystems. Much of this can be attributed to human activity, but we at
MGMC believe the ability of people to rectify problems is just as strong as the ability to create them.
In collaboration with local bee preservation organisations MGMC aims to protect bee populations crucial to the survival of local communities. Bees are an essential link in a production chain that feeds millions and allows populations to improve their way of life. The bee farming itself is an exceedingly powerful conservation tool. The strategic placement of hives by local communities can serve a wide range of purposes from pollinating crops acting as a deterrent for encroaching wildlife. The success of bee populations directly translates into the success of local peoples in more ways than one.
In addition to these benefits, a healthy bee population will allow for the development of a range of world class holistic products. The region of Sub-Saharan Africa in which we operate, when compared to more Westernised nations, is all but free of pesticides and pollutants. Allowing for the honey created to be of unmatched quality.
Alongside a range of non-cannabinoid related offerings a selection of CBD infused honey products will be created in conjunction with the conservation efforts. The revenue from these will go in large part towards furthering the protection of bee populations and helping the communities that rely on them.
Our honey focused conservation efforts are another area in which MGMC is proud to say...
WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
