Business Description

Ecomist is an eco-friendly insect control product dispensing natural pyrethrin. The market uses of Ecomist are limitless, from stables to homes and hospitals.

Ecomist is widely used as an effective insect control medium in Australia, New Zealand & Korea with great success. Now it is your opportunity to use this technology in Africa to make you successful. Ecomist designed products have been proven time and again in the most demanding environments using natural pyrethrin via a programmable battery operated dispenser. The pyretrin aerosol is dispensed 24 hours per day, 7 days a week for an entire month. Thereafter one needs to replace the aerosol at a cost.

Ecomist also uses the same technology to direct its other products - odour neutralizer and aroma fragrances - to in store fragrancing and aroma marketing. The latter are set to have massive potential in market differentiation for attracting customers to stores and hotels using fragrancing to improve the air quality.

Ecomist is authorized for use by the South African Department of Agriculture, the New Zealand and Australian Food Associations in food/beverage, farm/dairy, meat and poultry establishments. There are already a number of successful installations in South Africa.

Other Products

  • Air Freshener = carefully selected fragrances suitable for both the home & workplace.
  • Aroma Marketing = evocative aromas designed especially to encourage positive purchasing reactions.
