peatuceA Nigerian AgriTech startup, Peatuce, is on a mission to improve local food trade within and across Africa from the ground up.

Founded on February 1, 2018, the startup is set to improve the local food trade within and across Africa by increasing efficiency, service quality and enhancing profitability for farmers, suppliers and buyers.

“We believe in a future where local farmers play a large role in feeding our communities, and we are working to making that a reality. We are focusing on emerging markets with a target of over 20,000 local farmers on our platform in 2018,” Charles Ogbaoku, CEO Peatuce said.

Ogbaoku and Kingley Ebere, who is the Chief Operations Officer say they started Peatuce because of the ageing profile of Afrikan farmers, poor financial livelihood of smallholder farmers, and the continuous increase in global population.
