Sustainability

Ensuring long term success for the South African Mohair industry.

The mohair industry is of immense value to the South African economy, and provides many opportunities for employment, economic growth and social development. As such, Mohair South Africa understands that we have a responsibility to maintain the sustainability of the South African mohair sector.

Mohair farmers in South Africa are encouraged to register for a compliance assessment, which allows MSA’s Sustainability Officers access to farms on which Angora goats are kept and bred for the production of mohair.

Please fill in the MSA Sustainable Guidelines Registration below. Once we have received this information, we will be in contact with you to arrange an appointment.

Social Programme

The Mohair Empowerment Trust.

In addition to our continually evolving guidelines to ensure that the South African mohair industry continues to thrive and create profitable employment, Mohair South Africa works closely with the Mohair Empowerment Trust to assist emerging farmers to develop successful and sustainable Angora farming initiatives.

The Mohair Empowerment Trust is a non-profit organisation focused on uplifting and partnering with black South African farmers who show potential to succeed in the mohair farming industry. Working with Mohair South Africa, the trust supports, guides and develops the skills of these farmers, helping them to achieve their goals while also increasing South African production of sought-after mohair fibre.
