Responsibility

Responsibility // Values

At Feronia, our passion extends far beyond our agricultural operations.

We understand our responsibilities to our communities, and believe that transforming agriculture in the Congo can and will have a profound effect on the wellbeing and wealth of all the people of Central Africa.

We believe this will be achieved by:

  • Creating self-sufficiency in agriculture. When Africa is freed from its dependence on imported food, the benefits to every individual will be immense.

  • Leading the way in environmental management. The huge scale of our land with over 250,000 acres across 4 locations, gives us an important responsibility – and opportunity – to showcase responsible environmental management across our farming operations.
    Our plan includes the following practices:
    • Zero deforestation. We do not destroy forest. We achieve growth through restoring and replanting existing land.
    • We do not farm on greenfield lands.
    • All projects maintain an area for wildlife reserves integrated into the design.
    • Water quality is protected and recognized as integral to the health of the wider environment.
  • Supporting our approximately 4,000-strong work force and their communities. Feronia PHC has been providing basic services to communities for nearly a century. We recognize the value of our people as our most valuable asset, and aim to benefit local communities by providing employment and advancement opportunities. We also support a community of over 45,000 with schools, healthcare, sanitation and infrastructure including roads and electricity supplies.
