About

Description

Balmed is a brand committed to sustainable agriculture and community empowerment. They specialize in sourcing cocoa and robusta coffee from over 13,000 small-scale farmers in Sierra Leone. To ensure traceability, every farmer must be registered within the Balmed Certification Program and given a unique farmer code.


One of their groundbreaking initiatives is the Balmed Blockfarming SystemΒ©, which has resulted in the establishment of over 600 hectares of new cocoa plantations and the employment of 500 youths in their farms. This innovative land-use model for agricultural crops promotes job creation in rural areas and encourages community ownership. Balmed is dedicated to social responsibility, prohibiting any form of child labor and forced labor.


They also promote gender equality and prioritize the protection of the ecosystem. In addition to their cocoa and coffee operations, Balmed has expanded their focus to include cashew production. They aim to create a CO2-neutral and inclusive cashew value network that positively impacts the lives of mainly female smallholder farmers in Sierra Leone.


To drive impactful development and ensure transparency, Balmed utilizes a mobile Point of Sales traceability system and digital transformation through cloud-based analytics reports. They are proud to export cashew nuts from Sierra Leone for the fifth consecutive year, contributing to the reversal of climate change effects. Balmed extends their gratitude to their partners and investors for their invaluable support in their journey towards sustainability and positive change
