SYMFONIO works together with DID-IT, a company that invests and participates in organic and sustainable initiatives. In collaboration with Symfonio the emphasis lies on creating security of existence for women in rural Africa..
Solange Domaye, CEO, is a versatile entrepreneur with a passion for developing sustainable and meaningful trade between the African and European continent.
Poppe Braam founded more than 30 years ago an internationally operating company in organic raw materials and products. He is the owner of DID-IT, which aims to provide support and advice to start-ups and initiatives in the field of organics and sustainability.
Jurrien Roossien, as Roos for Food, with a passion for organic food, has joined DID-IT as a researcher and networker in the organic world
Martha Jeuken has worked in the organic industry for 40 years as an independent consultant, mainly in the field of product development, public relations and communication. In that capacity, she is involved in DID-IT and its projects.
The aim of SYMFONIO is to support organic agriculture of authentic African crops produced by women communities and to promote the African vibrant flavors and ingredients.
The export of an abundance of these specialties will provide the (women) cooperatives with livelihood for their families and the community.
SYMFONIO started with the focus on food products from women communities out of the Sahel region. Africa is a continent that seems to be forgotten when it comes to its food and its potentiality. There are many products coming out of Asia, South America and other parts of the world where the origin lies in Africa, a continent that offers many special crops with a long history.
Our support will consist of encouraging African small holder farmers to produce organic crops, training them, create local processing industries, provide financial support and finally creating an export market for their excess productions.
