Identification

Cleantech (web, smartphone app, payment solution) for scaling up agroecology through E-commerce of organic products, production and support to farmers.

PREMIUM HORTUS is the cleantech for scaling up agroecology and sustainable development. Like many African countries, Benin has a rapid increase in its urban population with high needs for garden produce (fruits, vegetables,...). Large quantities of chemical fertilizer and inputs are used, and the distribution system remains very traditional with a lack of modern agricultural technology. To tackle this issue, Premium Hortus is a cleantechnology platform in Africa, specializing in e-commerce of agroecological products, organic production and support to producers. Available as a web, mobile platform and payment solution, it allows to subscribe, choose, order, pay online and get home delivered fruits, vegetables, natural seeds, biofertilizers and organic products safely. This solution strengthens the resilience of family farmers with support and access to healthy foods in a healthy environment for all.
