ADF-AGRO’s “Centre de Séchage de Farako was founded in 2017 and has one main objective: the transformation of raw material in order to create substantial added value to the farmers’ crops and provide employment opportunities for the rural population in Côte d’Ivoire. ADF-AGRO produces dried mangoes and also exports fresh fruits.
The company’s project aims to support the women in the Ivory Coast and to enhance their general status in life. ADF-AGRO assists in creating mango plantations, provides relevant knowledge as well as training for organic production and guarantees to market the farmers’ harvest. This is of high importance to ensure a steady income for the farmers, who represent a vital component in this production chain.
During the campaign, the Centre de Séchage de Farako employs 80 people. The company exports fresh and dried mangoes to Europe (France and Belgium) and Morocco.
