Summary of our main interventions around agricultural chains and rural development

The heart of Famboléna's expertise is the organization of agricultural chains: identification and evaluation of the various actors, technical support for producers, logistics to buy and transport the products, their conditioning and processing.

Famboléna's achievements mainly concern the cocoa, cotton, tobacco and food crops industries, but we can also intervene in all tropical productions.
