WHO ARE WE
Afruibana is a pan-African association of African fruit producers and exporters. Born from the regrouping of several communities of the fruit sector in Côte d'Ivoire, Cameroon and Ghana, it is the voice of African producers to international institutions.
While the majority of the association's members are currently banana producers, Afruibana is an open platform that aims to federate African fruit producers and defend their interests globally.
To carry out this mission, the presidency of the association has been entrusted to Mr. Joseph Owona Kono. He works in close collaboration with Jean-Marie Kakou-Gervais, and Mr. Anthony Kofi Blay, Vice Presidents of Afruibana.
With Afruibana, African fruit producers now have a representation force to defend their interests before the European institutions.
Brussels is a gateway to European and international decision-makers and Afruibana ensures that African agricultural concerns are taken into account by them.
"In recent years, the, the Hana market has been profoundly changed in recent years. Our presence in Brussels allows us to anticipate these developments and better defend the interests of African producers."
"Post-Cotonou and post-Brexit, Afruibana is a key player that allows to raise many African issues at the international level. We are happy to join Afruibana and to be able to contribute to the work of the association for the Defense of our producers in Brussels."
Afruibana is made up of the different national federations of the main African banana producing countries. ·
