NIANDA AGRICULTURE AND TRADING has benefited from COLEACP’s Fit For Market programme support to analyse its current pest management system. COLEACP expert Mr Emmanuel Owusu carried out an overview of pest and disease status, and suggested solutions for the company to improve its integrated pest management.
NIANDA is a Sierra Leonean company with a focus on fruit and vegetables (mangoes, passion fruit, okra, pepper, eggplant, etc.) sold on the local and export markets (fresh and frozen). Founded in 2011, the company produces, collects, and distributes fruit and vegetables produced by outgrowers. NIANDA also trades in high-quality certified seeds, fertilisers, herbicides, and farm tools.
This activity is supported by the Fit For Market programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union, and co-funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).
