How Yaka is working together for Africa
Yaka is a socially-conscious business. We make delicious food products while creating sustainable livelihoods for rural households.
We want to create a positive social change in the world. More than 70% of Africa’s population live in rural areas. The majority depend on farming to create an income to support themselves and their families. With the sourcing of local agricultural produce we create life-changing income streams for our farmers and employment for our factory workers.
We strive for a gender equal workforce.
Unlike other companies, who operate far from their producers, we are based in Ghana and know our farmers and staff personally.
Working with Local Farmers
We work closely with local farmers to bring out the very best ingredients in a pure and authentic way. Yaka is our passion for Africa we want to share with you. We process our products in an artisanal way in our own small factory in East Legon, Accra.
Brief History of Yaka
We want to share the rich flavours of Africa with the world while creating local jobs along the value chain of local agriculture products. Yaka was created in January 2019 by an international team of 1 Ghanaian, 2 French and 2 Belgians, who have been living and working for more than 20 years on the African continent. The first products have been successfully introduced in the Ghanaian market in April 2020. Due to the success in Accra we quickly started to export our products to Abidjan, Lome and Cotonou. Since June 2021 we export our artisanal quality products to Europe. We look forward to serve our artisanal products to the rest of the world
