High-value Syrup from 'Prekese' Fruits for Community Livelihood Empowerment

High-value Syrup from 'Prekese' Fruits for Community Livelihood Empowerment

“High-value Syrup from 'Prekese' Fruits for Community Livelihood Empowerment”. Relying on local raw materials, the partners of this promising initiative strive to establish the sustainable cultivation and harvesting of Prekese fruits in rural communities, allowing income to be generated over the whole life cycle of the tree.

Relying on local raw materials, this initiative promotes the sustainable cultivation and harvesting of Prekese fruits in rural communities, allowing income to be generated over the whole life cycle of the tree. Small scale extraction plants will be set up in selected communities to process Tetrapleura tetraptera (Prekese), an indigenous tree species, which grows in the wild and on people's farms. Women and unemployed youths will be trained in the production of Prekese syrup which will then be commercialised on the local and national market. Furthermore, the establishment of Prekese plantations in rural areas is planned to ensure a constant supply of quality fruit. 

  • Funding partners to support pilot processing plant set-up and the establishment of fruit plantations.
  • Planning consultants to assist with establishing small enterprises and market linkages.
  • External management support and technical training.
