In 2018 the Food Bridge vzw started the Food Heritage Project in the East and middle belt of Nigeria. The aim of the project is to motivate and support farmers to grow organic indigenous crops, especially healthy species that are rare or in danger of extinction. Artisanal producers of indigenous food products are also part of this project. After the pilot stages; collecting seedlings and planting, learning from all the challenges, the project is now fully in operation in the 2 areas.

From this year's harvest in Nigeria, the project now has organic crops being sold directly to consumers. Some of the crops and food products include yellow yam, water yam, bitter yam, white yam, fonio, guinea corn, millet, cocoyams, beans, palm oil, egusi,  ogiri and other food products.

The plan is to expand the project in Nigeria and  start another phase of the project in Ghana in 2022. We will be working with rural women farmers in the eastern region of Ghana.
To make the new phase of the project successful, we also need support. You can support the project by buying products in  Nigeria ( Contact local coordinator on Whatsapp 234 816 689 2206) or make a donation to the project :
