Welcome to Chede

We boost the technical and institutional capacities of our village-based member cooperative societies by processing what they produce into finished goods for local, regional and global markets.

Our “village-first” development approach aims to level the disparities between Africa’s urban and so-called “rural sector” by focusing public investment and development services on meeting the needs of the majority population living in villages.
