The FENAPAB – National Association of Cashew Producers in Benin
Who Are We?
The National Federation of Cashew Producers of Benin (FENAPAB) is the umbrella organization for cashew farmers in Benin. It is organized from the grassroots up to the national level.
FENAPAB was created in January 2006 following the government's call to make cashew nuts one of the top priorities. Regulated according to the uniform of the OHADA, it is officially recognized by the Government of Benin under the number 03/10/03/2016 / Im (Registration date October 4, 2016.) Today, it brings together more than 450 cooperatives.
The FENAPAB is based on universal cooperative principles. It is administered by a general assembly of 40 delegates, a board of directors of 11 members, and a supervisory board of 3 members.
The network has a technical staff of about 50 staff members in the Permanent Secretariat (national headquarters). The FENAPAB serves today as the reference in terms of information on cashew nuts in Benin.
