Abaco, Bahamas – The proprietors of Abaco Neem, Nick and Daphne Miaoulis recently returned from the first annual “World Neem Organisation” (WNO) Summit and educational trip to Bangalore, India which was attended by 21 companies from 7 different countries outside of India. Those countries included Bangladesh, The Bahamas, Kenya, Australia, Canada, Paraguay and Portugal.
The use of neem originated in India almost 5000 years ago and has been used as a popular medicinal herb as part of traditional remedies for anti-viral and anti-bacterial, along with being a powerful immuno-stimulant.
The attendance and participation of the Miaoulis team at the WNO Summit and Exhibition was sponsored by Dr. Martin Vorderwülebecke, founder of their 4 year old joint venture in Paraguay, South America called the Neem Project. That farm currently has 800 acres cultivated with an excess of 20,000 neem trees originating from Abaco Neem certified organic seeds. The aim of the Neem Project Exhibit was to promote the Paraguay farm as a supplier of world class organically grown raw commodity of neem leaf, oil, bark and cake (a by-product of Neem seed, an effective soil enhancer and in animal husbandry).
