the velvette company
In order to meet the world’s growing food needs, agricultural production must double by 2050, food waste must be reduced and food systems have to become sustainable and efficient.
about the company
The Velvette Company is a consultancy and trade development company.
We work with stakeholders across the food value chain from production, warehousing, processing, trade and waste disposal. Our concern for food waste reduction across the supply chain is why we work with recyclers to process waste to form raw materials for new production.
Our aim is to ensure that more food is produced, distributed and processed sustainably for all.
We currently have networks in 12 West African countries and work tirelessly to promote global access and fair trade for local farmers, farm aggregators and co-operatives.
Our daily objective is to enhance the perception of doing business and sourcing commodities in Africa by delivering consistent quality in a timely manner.
The Velvette Consulting Enterprise Limited is registered with the corporate affairs commission of Nigeria with registration number 1664269.
At the Velvette Company, we ensure that the highest standards and best practices are maintained in all phases of our operations.
