Togo Will Pump CFA1.715 Billion in the Mango Sector in 2024-2028

(Togo First) - Togo needs CFA1.715 billion to develop its mango industry over the next five years, ending in 2028. The 2024-2028 Action investment plan for the mango sector was recently validated by the Ministry of agriculture. This was done in collaboration with the Interprofessional Council of the sector.  

The Togolese State should provide 25% of the investment, or CFA438.6 million and CFA840.9 million or 49% should come from the private sector. Technical and financial partners should provide the last CFA435.75 million. 

The investment strategy has four main goals: boosting the quality and production of mangoes, doing the same with and valorizing derived products, creating an environment that is conducive to the sector’s development, and improving governance by organizing actors better. 

In the long term, the five-year plan aims to dedicate 500 hectares of land to mango farming, in the Zones d'Aménagement Agricole Planifiées (ZAAP).  Two additional ZAAPs, specifically dedicated to mango and covering 100 hectares each, are also planned to boost the production and marketing of this delicious fruit.

Togo produced about 50,500 tons of mangoes in 2022, according to official data. And 718 producers were officially registered.
