Our Global Impact
Working for a Better, More Sustainable Africa
Kèkè's main premise is that an efficient supply chain and logistic network creates more jobs, boosts the economy, and has a positive impact on Africa's sustainability practices.
Access to Work
As a company, we hire young African talent to bring fresh ideas and creativity to the team. We also allow young farmers and young entrepreneurs to partner with Kèkè Logistics and increase their business through our portal. We believe that giving people access to tools will increase their profitability and provide the opportunity to scale their business.
At Kèkè, we study the best sustainable farming practices and integrate them in our client manuals for our partners to have good agricultural practices at the ready, without having to do the research themselves. We also implement sustainable standards to our guidelines to ensure that our partners use the best knowledge available to them.
Kèkè's vision is that more efficiency and a streamlined supply chain allow farmers to incur less loss in expired crops. When agri-goods arrive at their final destinations more quickly, it gives them a longer shelf-life, decreasing the amount of waste at the end of the supply chain.
At times the freshest products are saved for export, with local African populations having to consume products with a shorter shelf-life. The freshness of the agri-goods being sold at local markets directly affects the quality of food and nutrients the local population consumes. The local population consuming fresh goods with a young shelf-life decreases the likelihood of diseases and illnesses that may occur when consuming older or expired products.
The Global Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
