What are we about!
Born in the warm heart of Africa, Malawi, Simply African Seed Company was birthed with a view of providing households, small holding farmers and commercial farmers with locally produced, organically grown non-GMO seed.
More than 80% or our seeds are Heirloom seeds sourced from all over the world and grown on our seed farms in Malawi and South Africa.
The remaining 20% are tried and tested hybrid varieties which have all been grown for more than 2 seasons on our farms.
We strive to provide varieties in our ever growing range that are not commonly found and are from an organic sustainable source in Africa in line with our motto, “Grown and processed in Africa, for Africa, by Africans”.
We strive to uplift and support local communities where we have a presence through our corporate social responsibility program by:
Why we are different?
We believe in repurpose, reuse, recycle and being as green as humanly possible.
The use of our Biodegradable paper packets is one of the many reasons that prove we are different from our competitors.
We also pride ourselves in the fact that we strive for 0% Produce wastage during the seed production process.
Pulp and left of plant materials from the seed extraction process are used to produce sauces, jams, organic pesticides and compost for use on our farms.
All our produce for seed is grown using our own seed. Given the correct conditions, seeds all show germination rates in excess of 80% if planted correctly.
The fact that the seed is produced in the region results in seed and plants that are more acclimatized, resistant and hardy than those grown from seed in climates different to ours.
We also do not print unnecessary Jargon on our packets i.e., non GMO, No Chemicals in the front of the packet, then, not suitable for human consumption due to chemical process, at the back of the same packet. We believe in judging the quality of a product by trying it.
