About Us

We are a limited liability company registered in Ghana for the purpose of pig farming and production of pork and pork products (Registration No: CS 503092014). We work with a network of smallholder pig farmers by providing them with technical assistance to improve the quality of the pork they produce. In return we off take their produce and retail, thereby including them in the pork value chain.

We house our pigs in spacious pens all year round where they are fed on  agro-processed byproducts like rice bran, palm kernel cake and soybean. Growth hormones or any form of hormone enhancers are not used on our farm.
