Togo to benefit from a $3.6mln regional program launched by the Global Shea Alliance, GSA

(Togo First) - The Global Shea Alliance, GSA, has launched a program to boost the exports of quality shea and its derivatives produced in Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Togo. 

This is a $3.6 million program launched in partnership with the Enhanced Integrated Framework, (EIF). Its programs is “Supporting the Inclusive Commercial Development of the Shea Value Chain” (PRADCIFK).

Besides boosting exports, the program will bolster access to international markets for small and medium enterprises (2,180 of them overall). It will also increase the capacities, thus the earnings, of shea processors and collectors (including 30,660 women). 

In effect, volumes of shea traded annually in the countries concerned are expected to grow by 28,880 tons, due to the initiative. 

Togo, let’s note, is the world’s 7th biggest shea producer. Last October, the country established the national inclusive federation for shea which regroups planters, collectors, and processors.
