Andermatt/Madumbi alliance in South Africa
South African biological farming products company Madumbi Bio Farms (Gillitts) has acquired a majority stake in Swiss biopesticide company Andermatt Biocontrol’s South African subsidiary, Andermatt South Africa. The new entity will be called Madumbi Sustainable Agriculture. Andermatt set up its South African subsidiary in June last year ( Agrow No 594, p 2). Both companies share a vision to develop sustainable environmentally friendly solutions for the rapidly growing sustainable agricultural market in southern Africa, they say.
