Backed by the World Bank, Togo will spend CFA500 million to develop its beekeeping industry in 2019

(Togo First) - Next month, a major beekeeping project will be launched in Togo, leveraging a fund of CFA500 million.

The project which is an initiative of the government, with the World Bank’s support, aims to boost employment in the beekeeping sector. Overall, 500 jobs are to be created in its framework, 100 in each region of Togo.

This project mainly focuses on youth who will receive adequate training and equipment to deliver quality honey and beeswax.

In the long term, the country hopes to export its honey to other markets like Nigeria whose annual demand for honey stands at 380,000 tons.

The creation of this new fund aligns with Togo’s desire to modernize the beekeeping sector, exploiting innovative techniques that are more environment-friendly and ecologic, while boosting productivity.
