Five of MBFi’s employees recently traveled to Argentina to visit Rizobacter – suppliers of some of our revolutionary biological products. We were warmly greeted at the airport by the Rizobacter team and were treated to the weekend in Buenos Aires before traveling to Pergamino for an exciting week of training and a look into their laboratories and how they use them as a Center of Excellence.

The MBFi team got to learn about all the procedures involved in developing and researching quality biological products. The laboratories boasted world class equipment and technology and were manned by highly experienced scientists, from microbiologists and agronomists to seed technologists and experts in water analyses. The experience provided us an insight as to how a center like this should operate and the standards that would be required. It was also interesting to realize and appreciate how all the work conducted within the laboratories links up with the market place.

MBFi hopes to establish a Center of Excellence (CoE) similar to the one at Rizobacter. We believe that the CoE will be a fundamental tool within the agricultural industry; it will provide us with the instruments to concentrate capacity and resources and thereby enable researches to join forces across various disciplines and institutions to work on long term projects relevant to both local and international bio-technology markets. The CoE will be one of a kind in South Africa and we are confident that it will set us apart from our competitors.

MBFi in conjunction with Rizobacter and their vast knowledge of the agricultural industry and production of top quality products, through our CoE aims to link research with high standards in order to achieve the development of optimum products which carry technology second to none.

We would like to thank the Rizobacter team for hosting MBFi once again. Your hospitality was much appreciated! We look forward to seeing you in South Africa soon!
