Syngenta Zambia has “cemented” its commitment to Zambian farmers and crop protection with their new corporate office in Lusaka’s Rhodes Park area.

Syngenta Zambia held a launch event in Lusaka to officially unveil the company’s new location in Rhodespark. Farmers, government representatives and an audience of key players in the agricultural business community attended the event to celebrate the unveiling of the office which is a significant step in symbolising the company’s dedication to the Zambian market.

Speaking at the event, Syngenta’s Head of Crop Protection in Africa and Middle East, Jerome Barbaron, and Given Mudende, Head of Southern Africa Business and Managing Director of Syngenta in Zambia, highlighted that the move to a new office is a major step in improving their customer service delivery especially to  corporate clientele and also fuelling their long-term commitment to Zambian farmers.

Mr Mudenda spoke about their “Good Growth Plan” – a plant protection strategy that is aimed at the overall improvement and sustainability of agriculture in Syngenta’s operations.

He said: “Climate change is a huge challenge to the sustainability of the agricultural ecosystem. Our Good Growth Plan aims to take on these challenges by making agriculture more resilient and sustainable and driving a better, greener, recovery. We must help farmers address it with new technologies and services, both to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.”

Syngenta remains committed to the agri-sector in Zambia and other Southern African countries, and fully dedicated to its customers and their growth in the industry. In affirmation of this commitment, Mr Barbaron further stated that crop and seed protection is a firm promise of their global operations.

“From the moment a seed is planted through to harvest, crops need to be protected from weeds, insects, and diseases, as well as droughts and floods, heat and cold. As a world market leader in crop protection, we help farmers to counter these threats and ensure enough safe, nutritious, affordable food for all – while minimizing the use of land and other agricultural inputs.”

Syngenta Zambia has upheld another industry promise to empower the agricultural sector with impactful collaborations and professional solutions. “To create successful collaborations, we need diversity of ideas and expertise. We don’t work alone but have many partners, such as universities, research institutes, and sustainable agriculture experts.”

The new Syngenta Zambia office will play a significant role in their mission to offer environmentally sustainable methods to enhance the productivity and value of agricultural businesses in Zambia.
