Agricultural activities and biodiversity

The agricultural activity carried out by Tozzi Green confirms an entrepreneurial identity handed down from generation to generation, aimed at the integrated and sustainable growth of the local area.
In line with the Group’s family roots, linked to the farming culture, Tozzi Green sees productive agriculture as an essential tool for the development of the areas in which it operates.
The entrepreneurial strategy is based on the conviction that “a surplus capable of going beyond subsistence triggers industrial transformation processes”

Aware of the role that agriculture can play in growth and sustainable development over time, in the fight against poverty, and in food and nutritional security, Tozzi Green has launched a large-scale agricultural production. We have invested in industrial crops (geraniums, spices) but above all in crops such as maize and soy that are 100% intended for the domestic market and enter the local food chain for feeding farm animals, contributing to the growing food needs of the country (accredited supplier with the World Food Program).

The diversification of crops and the care of gardens around the houses of residents, has enriched biodiversity which, in these particular areas, was in danger of a progressive and inevitable decline.

In Madagascar, Tozzi Green has developed several different crops in the Ihorombe region, in the southern part of the country, in the Ihosy District and distributed across the municipalities of Satrokala, Andiolava, and Ambatolahy.
These lands are so difficult to farm that they have never attracted the interest of agro-industrial entities. Crops are selected on the basis of their ability to adapt to the characteristics of the soil and the local climate.
Over the years, after various experiments, Tozzi Green succeeded in introducing different varieties of crops.
Today, where there was previously only arid land destined to become desert, one can see green areas and the appearance of mammals, birds, insects, chameleons, and bees.
The diversification of crops, including individual pineapple plants, fruit trees and the care of the gardens, has enriched biodiversity which, in these particular areas, was in danger of a progressive and inevitable decline.
By developing crop varieties suited to the region’s specific characteristics and improving agronomic techniques that allow soil fertilisation through the improvement of its agricultural qualities, Tozzi Green’s activities have reclaimed over 7,300 hectares of degraded and marginal land, saving it from desertification and transforming it into fertile agricultural land.
