From being a shepherd in Bobo-Dioulasso, then apprentice butcher in Ouahigouya, Boukari Diallo is today at the head of a successful company that employs around twenty people.

Boukari was an apprentice butcher at the big market of Ouahigouya in Burkina Faso. One evening, a customer came to buy meat when the market was already closed. This is when he got the idea that he will open a butcher shop, whereby meat would be available even in the evenings, when meat is not available anywhere in the city.

“There is a big difference between the other butcher shops and ours. We offer beef bourguignon, sausage, merguez, pâtés, smoked sausage, first and second choice minced meat, fillets and kidney. In short, we offer all types of meat here,” says Boukari.
