    Burkina Faso

    Our operations in Burkina Faso began in 1994. We’re now one of the country’s leading exporters of agri-commodities, such as sesame.

    With our permanent staff based in our head office in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso’s second largest city, we operate an integrated supply chain across sourcing, processing, logistics, marketing and distribution, to ensure good value creation and risk management for our customers.

    Our Packaged Foods Business distributes leading brands such as Tasty Tom and Festin across the country. These include everyday store cupboard staples such as tomato paste and pasta.


    Through group company ofi, we offer high quality cashew, underpinned by several sustainability programmes to support local farmers.
