    Pharo Ventures will build and operate a state-of-the-art edible oil plant tofour different conventional oil seeds (Sesame, Black cumin, Flax and Niger seeds) into edible oils and animal feed cakes.

    Oil seeds commercial farm

    Traceability, fair and sustainable supply chain is at the centre of our offering. To ensure quality and have impact across the value chain, we have made the decision to invest in our own commercial farm to produce raw materials for our processing facility.  Beyond the processing facility, we will sell a variety of crops to export and for local markets.

    Beyond our own farm, we are working on building a network of out-growers around our farm land. Our out-grower program will support farmers in getting access to improved variety seed in a timely manner, provide technical support to the farmers across the different stages of cultivation. We will provide a guaranteed market for their produce at a fair price.


    In the coming years, we plan to invest in various sectors beyond agriculture. Targeted sectors include;

    • Manufacturing
    • Health
