We are empowering Global Food systems and Actors, and Optimizing processes for efficiency and Sustainability.
Born out of a phrase of confidence and positivity in our Origin and Heritage as Africans and Primary Food Producers, Riweaku, stems from a native African word which means ‘to keep eating wealth’. It symbolizes optimism, continuity, confidence and hope in sustainability of our natural resources and heritage.
In a not-so-distant past, Wealthy families were known by the size of their barns and their ability to feed so many mouths. Farming was a thing of pride. Father’s gave their offspring names like, ‘Oriaku’ which means, the one who eats my wealth, because sustainability was a given.
Today, Several factors such as bio-degradation, climate change and even diversification and urbanization contribute to the existential dilemma of the food value chain, and they continue to impede the evolution and growth of food producers. These unsung heroes of our time continue to put in so much efforts to feed the growing global population. However, their return on investments have left them in trenches as they constitute nearly 60% of Africa’s poorest population.
Riwe is a symbol of optimism in our natural heritage as primary food producers. We believe in the dignity of farming. We believe that healthy, affordable and accessible food should not be a luxury.
