Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 2 - Commercial Trial Small Scale

PREMIUM HORTUS is the cleantech for scaling up agroecology and sustainable development. Like many African countries, Benin has a rapid increase in its urban population with high needs for garden produce (fruits, vegetables,...). Large quantities of chemical fertilizer and inputs are used, and the distribution system remains very traditional with a lack of modern agricultural technology. To tackle this issue, Premium Hortus is a cleantechnology platform in Africa, specializing in e-commerce of agroecological products, organic production and support to producers. Available as a web, mobile platform and payment solution, it allows to subscribe, choose, order, pay online and get home delivered fruits, vegetables, natural seeds, biofertilizers and organic products safely. This solution strengthens the resilience of family farmers with support and access to healthy foods in a healthy environment for all.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Reduction of 8000 kg/ha of chemical inputs estimated at 60 kg / ha / year of NPK
  • CO2 reduction estimated at 5883 kg/year or 46.67% of GREENHOUSE GAS over a total of 1681 Kg / ha / year emitted by conventional agriculture
  • 70% reduction in food waste (7840 kg / household / year)

The Financial Benefits

  • Strong savings through responsible consumption (40% at least of the useless charges of the traditional market)
  • Payment security and boosting the local economy
