Agro, Inc. is an integrated provider of agricultural products and services linking farmers to markets. It was formed in 2006 and is headquartered on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, Liberia.This agro-industrial firm specializes in the establishment and management of industrial as well as smallholders' plantations and allied processing and down stream industries. Crops produced and processed by the company include oil palm, and natural rubber, rubberwood and cassava.
Agro, Inc. began from a consolidation of Bong County Rubber Plantations and Margibi Estate Farms located in Liberia. Soon thereafter, we began an aggressive expansion program that lead to the acquisition of additional oil palm and rubber estates, the fostering of partnerships with up-country suppliers, and the development out-grower programs around our nucleus plantations
Our strong origination capabilities made it feasible for value-addition and direct marketing of our agro-products to regional buyers. Many of our products undergo primary and intermediate processing before they are delivered to the final customer. These and other value chain services have allowed for the building of synergies between our activities in the origin and destination markets.
In 2006, Agro saw an opportunity to transfer these skills and competencies across geographic boundaries into other developing countries and across product boundaries to other adjacent products. Today, we manage activities - from origination to processing, logistics, marketing and distribution - in the supply chains of locally produced oil palm, natural rubber, cassava, pineapple, plantain, and rubberwood. Beyond Liberia, Agro is also active in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire. A marketing office is located in Washington, DC.
Our company maintains an executive corporate membership with the Liberia Chamber of Commerce, the Liberian Business Association (LIBA), the Rubber Planters Association of Liberia (RPAL), and is a charter member of the Oil Palm Association of Liberia (OPAL).
