Sustainable Development

Nexira was interested by the nutritional potential of Opuntia ficus-indica : they developed NeOpuntia® and Cacti-Nea™, and progressively committed the company to following the principles of sustainable development: 

  • Economic Development

This new activity enables farmers to add value to their crop. Cactus is no longer only used as fodder during the dry season, but it also represents a value-added, industrial raw material.

Cactus can be harvested and transformed all year long, which allows a  secure and stable source of income for farmers. It thus reduces production risks linked to climate sensitive agricultural products.

  • Social Development

More than 70 families live directly or indirectly off the revenues generated by the production of NeOpuntia® and Cacti-Nea™. This activity implanted deep in the rural areas provides valuable and secure jobs, minimizing thus the rural depopulation.

  • Environmental Protection

The cactus has incredible properties allowing it to resist to very dry conditions: production of this cactus is indeed possible in zones where rainfall is lower than 200 mm/year.

The cactus also has other advantages : in addition to animal fodder, it can be used for ground conservation, to prevent desertification and preserve lands prone to water and wind erosion. Indirectly, cactus growth in arid and semi-arid zones contributes to the protection and enrichment of a complete ecosystem, and consequently ensures biodiversity.

Cactus cultivation for the production of NeOpuntia® and Cacti-Nea™ follows the principles of organic farming, with no use of pesticide or chemical fertilizer : this natural method of growing Opuntia ficus-indica is thus particularly economical and environmentally friendly.
