In 2018, Gaël PAKOTOGO, holder of a Master’s degree in Business Law and Taxation, worked in an Indian company distributing imported agri-food products. He noticed that the Burkinabe population were more interested in local products.
After he left the company, he took part in a business plan competition, and submitted a proposal for agri-food processing. He was selected and underwent a 12-month training course in financial education and agri-food processing.
In 2020, he formalised his business by creating “Merveilles Productions” to produce juices and jams from local products.
