  • Togo now has a federation overseeing its cashew sector

    Oct 15th, 2019

    Togo's public authorities have established an inclusive federation for cashew to oversee the sector. At the head of the new institution that regroups producers, buyers, and processors is Elisabeth Essodolom Pali-Tchalla (photo), CEO of the Société Togolaise du Karité (STK). With a team of 11 people, Pali-Tchalla is tasked to, over a four-year period, remobilize all actors of the cashew sector, initiate its transformation and defend its interests. Though Togo is the 7th largest cashew producer, the country still faces many structural and organizational shortcomings including a low production capacity and insufficient equipment for processing.
