BFSA is sponsoring a project in Guinea to produce rice, pulses, cassava, red pepper and turmeric products using modern agricultural technology. The BFSA’s main aim is to develop large-scale agro-processing facilities and other agricultural infrastructure, thereby supporting the increased production of staples in order to facilitate food security and realize sustainable agricultural development in West Africa.
BFSA will support its processing facilities with a combination of crops grown on its captive plantations and the output of trained local farmers. Its operations will include a series of rice and dal mills opening in line with production; cashew, turmeric, red pepper, Palm oil, Eucalyptus and cassava based alcohol processing plants to produce commercial products, most of them powered by biomass power plants.
The BFSA also proposes bio fertilizer plants to support the agricultural activities. These facilities will create skilled jobs up the agricultural (and support services) value chain. Other services provided as part of the project will include provision of drinking water facilities, afforestation, construction of check dams; infrastructure facilities like roads, agricultural compounds complete with worker accommodation, visitor accommodation, forges, shops and mechanics yards.
