Share this article

South Africa-based Madumbi Sustainable Agriculture has rebranded to Andermatt Madumbi following a merger with Andermatt Biocontrol.


The merger with Andermatt Biocontrol, pioneers of microbiological products for biological pest control, is a partnership for “a better future,” said Michelle Lesur, Andermatt Madumbi chief executive.

With its head office in KwaZulu-Natal, Madumbi Sustainable Agriculture is a supplier of biorational solutions for farmers. According to Lesur, “innovation will continue to be key in our approach to tackling complicated environmental and social challenges, both globally and locally.
“Together, we remain committed to improved food security and a vision for a world where food safety is no longer a concern.”
Madumbi’s journey began 20 years ago, when founders Andre Fox and Patrick Deal partnered Timbavati Game Reserve to assist local Shangaan communities as they attempted to create a protected elephant corridor. Their goal was to achieve this through sustainable agriculture. It was through a gift of locally grown potatoes known as madumbes that Madumbi Sustainable Agriculture was born on completion of the project.
