Ikaros Africa is a Malawian based and registered entity, which endeavours to be the impetus in establishing a new, inclusive, shared-value industry of hemp-based products, thriving within Malawi for export to international markets.
Ikaros Africa follows GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) for the cultivation of medical hemp varieties high in CBD (cannabidiol), in Malawi. In line with this, we are in the process of establishing a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified facility, to produce Co2 Supercritical extracts as well as proprietary processes and equipment, to produce higher purity CBD products – up to 99,99%. Our team of qualified scientists will also be looking into various other cannabinoids and their potential medicinal uses including local landrace cultivars.
Ikaros Africa has an established network connecting to markets in and across Europe and the Americas.
Our operation will be rolled out in Malawi as follows:
The export of extract in various forms and purities into international markets;
The export of finished products, white labelled, for international markets
Standing side by side with the Malawian people and the Government of Malawi, Ikaros Africa is committed to being part of a brighter future for the communities of Malawi.
IKAROS AFRICA, WHY MALAWI?
The Malawian people who are epitomised by their gentle, joyful, friendly and humble nature have earned Malawi the title of being “The Warm Heart of Africa”.
Ikaros Africa’s objective is to empower local Malawian communities and service providers, by their active participation in this new venture. Creating employment and market opportunities through both contract farming and direct employment by Ikaros Africa.
