Our Mission


To develop and nurture unique products and initiatives across the agricultural, technological and retail landscapes that reduce or eliminate harmful chemicals, solve economic challenges and respect natural processes. We strive to nurture an inclusive corporate culture and create economic opportunities for women, rural residents and farmers. Our technological platforms and rural innovation centers are built to serve smallholder farmers, rural artisans, indigenous communities, organic and regenerative agricultural producers. We work to ensure nature and technology merge sustainably and responsibly for economic, social and environmental benefit.

Our commitments


ECONOMY

The revenue from our work supports local economies. Through Roshem Ventures, we invest in infrastructure, skills training, organic and regenerative agriculture, food processing, and a range of locally-produced products. This leads to job creation as well as the development of programming. We aim to mitigate local economic challenges and poverty by providing access to skills training and continuously improving working conditions. By basing our economic activities on organic agriculture and the distribution of products that are free of harmful chemicals, we ensure the long-term sustainability of our business and the local economy.

ENVIRONMENT

Our organic agriculture practices minimize waste by composting and managing waste locally. We do not use agricultural chemicals of any kind. None of our products contain environmentally-harmful chemicals and we strive to increase our use and distribution of biodegradable products while minimizing the use of plastics. We provide guidelines regarding best-practices related to the reuse and recycling of plastics that are involved in our manufacturing and distribution processes. Roshem Impact is committed to environmental conservation and our educational workshops and eco-tourism initiatives serve to share our values with others while supporting the achievement of our goals. 

SOCIETY

We create benefit for previously underemployed or unemployed individuals by providing them with employment that ensures proper training, the improvement of long-term employment prospects and better access to healthcare benefits and pension funds. We serve the greater community by donating food and essentials to people in need as well as providing education, training and resources that increase technological literacy and improve local farming practices.
