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.
Chede supports a number of research, development and conservation projects in the region, helping to protect local fauna and flaura, modernize village communities, and improve local storage and transport infrastructures.
