We are heading to the Burkinabe organic mango season, which is starting in week 14. Therefore we’d like to introduce you to our grower Sanlé Sechage. OTC Organics has been working together with the company since 2013. The family owned company, which is headed by its founder Yaya Koné, is located in the Burkinabe mango growing area of Banfora. The young and professional management team is highly qualified and very dedicated to guarantee the production and quality of their mangoes.
From March till June, Sanlé offers a 4 month supply window of two mango varieties: Amélie and Kent. To foster the socio-economic development in the region, the company employs 228 persons living in the vicinity, of which 90% are women and young men. Sanlé is making a great difference in the community of Banfora.
In 2018 we started the ‘OTC Social Engagement Program’, which means that we also are involved in the social development of our growers. In collaboration with Sanlé we are organizing among other things:
- A party to celebrate the beginning of the season for all employees.
- Daycare center for the children of employees younger than 2 years (assuming 2 kindergarten teachers in March and April).
- Once in 2 weeks temporary canteen for all employees.
- A party to celebrate the end of the 2019 season for all employees.
With this program we show that inclusive business is possible!
