Néré sector records improvements

(Togo First) - In the past three years, Togo’s néré seeds output rose from 110 t in 2018 to 126 t in 2020. The figure was reported in a study conducted by the FAO and the Agricultural Statistics, Information and Documentation Directorate (DSID).

According to this study, the earnings of actors operating individually in the sector rose from CFA42 million in 2018 to CFA79 million last year. As for those regrouped as cooperatives, their gross sales generated CFA1.3 million in 2018, CFA1 million in 2019, and 1.2 million in 2020. 

Sales of mustard and néré juice generated CFA70 million for actors operating individually and nearly CFA4 million for cooperatives, over the same period.   

Overall, there are 1,321 individual actors and 14 cooperatives active in the sector, the study shows. A majority of the former (58.6%) are in the Kara region, while the Savanes region is home to 71.4% of the cooperatives.
