ABOUT OUR COMPANY
AUGMAC Farms (SL) Limited was established in 2021, but officially registered and incorporated in Sierra Leone as a private company on the 30th November 2021 under the laws of the Republic of Sierra Leone. AUGMAC Farms (SL) Limited is determined to connect and transform the future through Agro Innovation by creating opportunities for growth and businesses that stimulate sustainable food production and increased incomes and innovative farm skills for underprivileged local farmers in Sierra Leone.
AUGMAC Farms (SL) Limited has agribusiness operations in Taiama, Kori Chiefdom, Sierra Leone. In Taiama, Sierra Leone, the company deals in cassava value chain processing cassava into Garri. Consumption of Garri in Sierra Leone helps to sustain approximately three million households and we have few rural producers, and these figures are expected to grow with the population explosion of the country. The (2019 Human Development Index) reported that in Sierra Leone the poverty level is high, with 53 percent of the population living below the income poverty line (US$1.25 per day).
Many smallholder farmers lack links to local markets, let alone international buyers. There is huge potential to push up sales. AUGMAC Farms (SL) Limited works to strengthen every aspect of farming supply chains, from soil to markets. We help and work with underprivileged rural farmers to build co-operatives, so they can sell in bulk. We train and empower local farmers to gain access to the knowledge, skills and networks on how to professionalize and fulfill their potential. AUGMAC Farms (SL) Limited is a partner to various private sector organizations on agriculture.
