The Republic of Chad

Chad, a political stable and oil rich country that is historically oriented toward agriculture, livestock breeding and even fishing. Even today, 80% of working population is directly affected by the primary sector, essentially by food production. Chad has today nearly 40 million hectares of arable land. Less than 10% of them are grown annually.

During his last election, the head of state His Excellency Mr. President Idriss Déby Itno has placed his last mandate under the sign of agriculture and youth development. Indeed, His country regularly suffers from food crises, and presents a cereal deficit of 500 000 tons. 20% of the population is in a situation of food insecurity. The development of this sector of activity is then a crucial aspect for Chad. Mechanization and production optimization, irrigation and processing are key sectors that offer significant business opportunities with foreign companies.

Sectors with high potential:

  •  Processing of fruit and vegetable such as mango and tomato
  • Industrial food processing
  • Milk production and management of milk farm
  • Professional training for farmers
  • Production of shea butter
