2021 SEED Starter Team Sustainable Agriculture Tamale, Ghana

Tilaa is a social enterprise, which integrates beekeeping and cashew plantation. They specialize in the production and processing of organic honey, beewax, cashew nuts inter alia. 

The company currently owns 200 acres of farmland and 50 beehives in the Northern Region. They work together with a network of 500 women, who get trained on the best practices of integrated beekeeping  and cashew plantation, land management, climate mitigation and adaptation.

Tilaa distributes innovative environmental friendly concrete beehives and hybrid cashew seedlings to them, offering them both extension and tractor services.  This shifts the agricultural focus from less environmental friendly practices to a more sustainable way of farming. Tilaa buys the products directly from the farmers to proccess and package the honey, thereby ensuring a high quality product.
