We are a start-up driven by a changemaker spirit that aims at bringing smallholder farmers and end-consumers back at the center of the value chains.
Convinced by the lack of sustainability of certain practices, our team is highly committed to positively impacting the Ghanaian agribusiness sector by simultaneously adding social, economic and environmental value to agricultural supply chains.
We aim to become a key player in Ghana’s agricultural sector and beyond by offering a comprehensive ecosystem of services and products that are environmentally, economically and socially sustainable.
Our values are based on a unique corporate culture founded upon Team spirit, Exigency, Integrity, Accountability and Transparency.
Most farmers in Ghana live below the poverty line.
The limited access to markets of Ghanaian farmers hinders intercropping and diversified production. Consequently, they opt for mono-production, which makes them non-resilient to external shocks such as climate change or price fluctuations. Besides this, the adoption of bad agricultural practices results in low yields and produce quality.
We want to bring change through our “Farmer Resilience Package” which is designed to build the capacity of our network of farmers, provide them with technical and financial support as well as a guaranteed market access all year round.

Ecosystem resilience: biodiversity preservation
Our organic production protects each ecosystem in place (from micro-organism in the soil to butterflies, bees and other good insects, parasites etc.).
We forbid the use of agro-chemicals by supporting a farming method which takes into account nature and its biodiversity to produce more and better.
Our approach guarantees a decent living income for our farmers. We use an annual fixed price system that protects farmers from price fluctuation. A monthly income allows the farmers to become bankable and access financial services.
Our goal is to help the farmers to move from 1$ / day to a guaranteed 4$ / day as a minimum living income.
We promote and sell handcraft products made in Ghana by local artisans.
