Our History

FOPABU-IA is an Association-Type Organization (OTA), otherwise known as a Non-Profit Association, by Burundian law. It was created in July 2009 (see our statutes). Our organization has been legally recognized and operational since October 2012. It is a group of 10 takeovers grouped around the diversified food sectors.

It helps to stimulate and promote the professional development of Burundi’s agricultural producers (M/F) by strengthening their skills and capacities, protecting and promoting their rights and interests.

The aim is to develop Burundian agricultural sector and facilitate the meaningful participation of farmers within the typical commercial agribusiness sector, while ensuring the long-term sustainability of the agricultural sector in Burundi.
