What Sustainability Means to the Mohair Industry
Friday, 8 March 2019
With roughly half of all mohair being produced in South Africa – particularly in the Karoo region of the Eastern Cape – it is essential that our mohair industry remains committed to environmental awareness and complete traceability.
Mohair South Africa was born from the acknowledgement of the responsibilities that come with being the world’s most reliable source of quality mohair, and aims to advance the entire South African mohair industry in terms of both the environmental and human elements of production.
To achieve this objective, Mohair SA has partnered with numerous key players in both the local and international mohair industry to develop effective measures that will ensure the long-term growth and improvement of the sector. We believe that shared knowledge, a vigorous commitment to continuous improvement, progressive attitudes and financial discipline are crucial ingredients for the future success of the industry.
With so many farms, animals and livelihoods dependent on the South African mohair industry, we see it as paramount that everyone involved in the entire mohair value chain is committed to continuously improving the industry for the better, across all levels of responsibility.
