SEKEM is the first initiative to develop biodynamic farming methods in Egypt, building up fertile soil structures, improving agro-biodiversity and promoting organic composting; all products of the system can be sold, used in processing or re-used in cultivation. SEKEM’s commitment to innovative development led to the nationwide application of biodynamic methods to control pests and improve crop yields. For example, in collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture, SEKEM deployed a new system of plant protection for cotton, reducing total pesticide intake to less than 10% and leading to a ban on crop dusting in the country. SEKEM has grown in the last decade to become a nationally renowned enterprise and market leader in organic consumer goods. Apart from strong and long-lasting export partnerships in Europe and the US, today, more than half of SEKEM’s overall sales are domestic within Egypt, making the country home to one of the largest markets of organic products.

ZOPPA promotes organic agriculture as an alternative farming system that removes dependency on chemical and seed companies, improves people’s health, balances the ecosystem while giving a livelihood even to the poor who cannot afford the chemicals. In an endeavour to promote organic agriculture ZOPPA does the following; 
i.    Lobby and advocate for a policy that supports organic agriculture in Zimbabwe
ii.    Establish and monitor an agreed set of organic standards 
iii.    Facilitate market linkages for organic producers
iv.     Provide relevant information on organic agriculture
v.     Coordinate organic agriculture activities for the growth of the industry 
vi.     Facilitate support structures, involvement for the growth of the organic sector(research, bio-inputs, etc.) 
In doing this ZOPPA hopes to make a contribution towards a nation that is committed to using natural means of agriculture to ensure a healthy future for the land and its people.
