Omnia is a voluntary member of the Fertilizer Association of Southern Africa (FERTASA). The Association’s mission is to provide a credible platform to promote the responsible and sustainable use of fertilizers.
Their goals are to:
- organise the fertilizer industry and to ensure that all members adhere to certain acceptable standards, as well as conduct business in a responsible manner
- act as liaison between the industry and the regulating authorities with regards to legislation
- act as liaison between industry and the public, as well as agricultural organisations assist with organising congresses, training and education in the use of fertilizer. The Fertilizer Handbook, BASOS etc. are results of the organisation’s contributions
- assist with the registration of products by means of quality control via the ARC, Grain SA and the Government
FERTASA has a code of conduct and set of standards within which members are encouraged to comply. These guidelines are audited, and if successful, a certificate of compliance is issued. Omnia was one of the first companies to obtain such certification.
