In Vitro Africa (IVA) was established in 2011 in Stellenbosch near Cape Town, South Africa. The head office has in the meantime been moved to Parys in the Free State Province.

Commercial operations are performed in Parys, Free State as well as Stellenbosch, Western Cape. Both the Parys and Stellenbosch facilities are certified centres for the export of bovine embryos and semen.

In Vitro Africa's main mission is to create, through the use of technology, the necessary conditions for sustainable economic and social development of commercial South African farmers as well as rural communities in Southern Africa undergoing restructuring.
