Why it’s a great investment?


This is an investment opportunity with tangible social impact because many of the local population grow and own large scale coconut plantations within the province and nearby provinces. Which means there’s a strong supply channel for downstream processing by Amruqa. Indeed, the sustainability of the many local growers are supported by Amruqa.




The common challenges that impede progress are; barriers to connecting with the market demand, the need for regular training on the best practices of processing & handling; inadequate infrastructure for logistic chains; and capital equipment to improve efficiency and returns.
