Everything for a prosperous agriculture in West Africa
The green Revolution
More prosperity through higher productivity
In West Africa, on average 2/3 of the population works in agriculture, but agriculture contributes only 1/3 of the gross domestic product. This discrepancy is the wealth gap that needs to be addressed. The solution to the problem lies in the amount of land available for cultivation and in land productivity. In addition, the issue of food security, and that as autonomously as possible, i.e. without being dependent on imports of basic foodstuffs, is of great importance. But solving these problems should not be the end of West Africa's aspirations, because there is enough potential in agriculture to be a net exporter and to establish further value-added stages beyond the mere cultivation of agricultural products.
With these challenges in mind, CALAFI aims to holistically revolutionise agriculture in West Africa. As part of our 360° approach, we are creating new, highly fertile cultivable land with new methods and we are preparing the land for efficient mechanised cultivation. We provide service offerings for all stages of the agricultural production chain with our own machinery. We sell high-quality, durable agricultural machinery, predominantly of German quality manufacture, and offer a full service for maintenance and spare parts supply to go with it. We supply the best seeds, conventional and organic, as well as mineral and certified fertiliser. And we buy and market the crop surpluses and export production to reputable customers in Europe. This is our 360° approach that covers all facets of the agricultural value chain.

Where the farmer is poor, the whole country is poor.
Environmental & Social Commitment
Sustainability as a credo
Support for village communities
Where CALAFI works for the project executing agencies, mostly governmental or parastatal organisations and associations, new farmland is created. The beneficiaries are the local farmers and their village communities. As part of the work, CALAFI transfers know-how and creates many new jobs. In addition, CALAFI sponsors the construction of solar plants, health stations, classrooms and irrigation systems for the village communities.
A large part of our commitment is aimed at the promotion and development of our employees. They are the ambassadors of our holistic approach to sustainable, mechanised and efficient agriculture. Our employees should show young people new perspectives in agriculture and motivate them to become part of the green revolution themselves.
If agriculture does not exist, the state cannot exist either.
