Pure and Just Co. Ltd (Catalysing Rural African Potential) is headquartered in Ghana’s dynamic capital, Accra. We are primarily engaged in food production using climate-smart processes and in farmer support and development. The company employs 9 people, 7 of whom woman and all of whom are under 35. We currently work with 6 farmers in 3 regions of Ghana and are in the process of setting up an organic out-growers scheme with 25 farmers in Ghana’s central region. We facilitate rural-urban business by linking rural farm produce to local and foreign urban retail opportunities via our flagship Yvaya Farm Dried Fruit brand, which produces delicious, all-natural, locally-produced dried fruit pouches. Our work stimulates economic growth by enhancing an under-developed local value-added agribusiness sector.
