Soya Solutions East Africa Ltd.
Location: Lira, Uganda
Company Stage: Startup
The lack of protein in the African animal and human food chain has been identified as a significant hindrance to development. Soya production and processing has been highlighted by global development leaders as a key priority for Africa given the low current production levels and high needs for protein. WFB has partnered with Soya Solutions East Africa Ltd. to jointly strengthen soya production sources and to develop a processing facility in Lira to annually produce 4,000 metric tons of soya cake and oil for sale in the Kenyan and Ugandan feed markets. It is expected that over 5,000 local farmers (the majority women) will produce soya for the new facility, creating new income sources and improved nutrition for their families.
Company Stage: Development
WFB is developing infrastructure both at its head office level and country levels to leverage the Uganda program to create regional capability, operating local grain sourcing, storage and sales platforms, and processing operations to:
- Improving food quality
- Increasing the protein available in Uganda
- Supporting price stabilization
- Increasing productivity and availability of grain supply
- Increasing smallholder farmers/family farmers income
Location: Kingdom of Bunyoro, Uganda
Company Stage: New Venture
WFB is demonstrating an ecosystem approach to feeding the world more efficiently, with limited risk, strong returns on investment, and sustainable social impact through a Farm Investment, Hoima Farms. WFB is leasing 5,200 acres of prime land from the King of Bunyoro and managed by a professional farm management group, FarmRite, to produce high grade soya, beans, rice and maize, and to test seed varieties and fertilizer. The farm rests upon the boarder of a refugee camp allowing refugees to be hired and trained on the farm, as well as local family farmers.
