Building on Local Expertise

WITH A COOPERATIVE OF 50 GHANIAN FARMERS

The Cooperative

Green Earth Agro believes in the traditional knowledge of the local population – since oil palms originated in Western Africa. Most of the farmers own a couple of trees, which they maintain. In selling the fruits to Green Earth Agro the farmers can ensure the costs of their living. They have jobs and are proudly earning money. Similarly, Green Earth Agro supports them to build more infrastructure, including a medical center and a school.
