Our Mission

Our mission is to provide non-toxic, eco-friendly chemical products for worldwide agricultural distribution. Since our inception, we have dedicated and invested significant resources, human and financial, to the research and development of environmentally friendly alternatives to the existing toxic, chemical products available on the market now. After years of hard work, Rhamnolipid, Inc. has developed unique strains of rhamnolipid - a biosurfactant secreted from bacteria – with the same effectiveness of existing products and without the negative side effects and impact of the current chemicals widely used today. Our goal is to provide our dedicated citrus farmers with an eco-friendly way to control citrus greening by replacing environmentally unsafe, man-made chemicals that are causing damage to the environment with our “green” products.
