Cropcare Ghana Limited

About

Cropcare Ghana Limited aggregates maize and soybean, and provides agro-inputs to smallholder farmers. Although the company is based in the southern part of Ghana, it’s main out-grower operations are in 11 districts of the North Savannah Ecological Zone, where it provides for at least 28 farmer-based organisations with a smallholder population of over 2,600. Cropcare is a relatively young but fast-growing company and has established strong links with major distributors of agricultural inputs. It is a newer partner for MADE, joining the programme in 2018. In that year, Cropcare aggregated more than 3,200 MT of maize; in 2019, the figure rose to 4,800 MT.
