Establishment of certified peanut sorting line in El Daien Sudan


Titre : Establishment of certified peanut sorting line in El Daien Sudan

Pays : Soudan

Dates : Start date : 1 March 2014 // End date : 24 June 2019

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-PSI13SD23

Programme : Private Sector Investment programme (PSI)

Peanut is one of the most important crops in Sudan, especially in the three Darfur States. As the main cash crop, it is grown by most of the farmers in this area. It is a crop of major economic importance and caters for food security as well as the people’s livelihood as a cash crop. Most of the peanuts traded in the region are shelled by mobile units at the farms and delivered in bags of 80 kg. However, since the de-shelling facilities are rather old and use outdated technologies, the percentage of damaged or broken kernels is very high and the product will not satisfy the HPS (Hand Picked Selected) quality requirements for the "ready to use" food sector and the peanut confectionery industry. The project is located in Ed Daein, East Darfur State. The applicant is the French company Onyx Développement SAS, specialised in nutritional products for the treatment and prevention of moderate and severe malnutrition. The local partner, Say Company, is directly involved in various food processing facilities and since 2010 the company is a joint venture partner of the applicant in the production of high value nutritional peanut products. The project will be incorporated in the joint venture of the partners. The envisaged project intends to create a business platform whereby peanut farmers, cooperatives and key stakeholders and to establish a long term partnerships to foster sustainable production of peanuts in the region with high standards. The project enables farmers to move from traditional agriculture under subsistence levels to commercially based activities in a post-war/conflict zone.
