Invest in Liberia and Start a Business in Agriculture and Food Processing

Invest in Liberia and start a business in Liberia in agriculture production and food processing, the returns on investment are high!

Liberia is blessed with ample fertile soils and ample rainfall; however it imports substantial quantities of its staple food, including rice which accounts for over 10% of its imports with over US$20 million.

The total value of food imported annually is over 30 US$ million. This food could be grown locally. It is time for Liberian people “to grow what they eat and eat what they grow”

This situation presents huge opportunities available in the agriculture sector.

Your investment is needed mainly in the production of rice, cassava, palm oil, vegetables and fruits.

For the export market, there are investment opportunities in production and processing of coffee, cocoa, maize and sugar cane.

The best way to increase the agriculture production is to introduce the technology that adds value to food produces by improving post harvest handling and processing.

Invest now in modern agricultural and food technologies and start making profits.

Rice Production: Small Scale Rice Mills

Liberia imports 90% of the rice consumed. To be importing hundreds of thousands of metric tons of rice each year is not only a waste of money but it traps Liberia into poverty…

Rice milling is a profitable activity in rural areas.

Start a rice milling activity with small rice mills that have a capacity from 200-500kg/hour each. Alongside the mills are also small-scale multi-crop threshers to complement the rice mills. Their output range from 500-800 Kg/hr and they are powered by 8hp petrol engines.

Additional equipment are: sewing machine and bagging stand.

The cost for a rice mill varies from an amount of 3,000 US$.

By investting this amount, you start making profits and you will return completely your investment within 24 months!!

Modern Fishing

With Atlantic coastline of 570 km and a continental shelf averaging 34 km in width. Liberia offers some 20,000 sq km of fishing ground. The total product of the fishery sector was estimated to be about 7,000 tons in 2005, but the potential is estimated over 50,000 tons.

Currently, the fishing equipment and processing material are obsolete in many fisheries communities.
