Welcome to Chede Cooperative Union


The Chede Cooperative Union boosts 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.

About Chede


Chede's "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 assists in the marketing and sale of the primary and processed products of its network members, which includes coffee, palm oil, and dried Cameroonian/African food items such as ndole, eru, okra, cassava leaves, pepper, etc.
