We support small scale farmers in their fight to alleviate poverty by adding value and promoting their products on the export market. The knowledge of our farmers and their individual hand harvesting to select only mature fruits, coupled with all the steps in our processing: peeling, cutting, and packaging been done by hand gives a more accurate check and allows us to offer you a high-quality product.

Our philosophy

Quality products and social commitments

Producer groups

Soil quality and weather conditions have a direct impact on fruit quality.
To ensure optimum conditions for each type of production, we work with groups of farmers in different locations.

Various forms of support

We support local communities in the fields of education and health, in collaboration with some of our customers and companies who are committed to working alongside us.

Here are just a few examples of the support we've given to our communities.
- Kasoa Government Hospital
- Takebe Ekumfi Atwia School

Management and Production Team

The management of Wad is assured by women.

The production team is made of skilled workforce. Their hard work is instrumental in crafting the premium-quality organic dry fruits and other products that Wad offers.

WAD, the fruit of a human adventure

In 1995, Patrick Deegbe, a crop scientist, and Christiane Deegbe, a nurse, discovered Tubaman-Weija during a vegetable project, sparking their journey.

In 2000, they founded Weija Agriculture Development (WAD) to support the village's cooperative, diversifying their production.

The following year, they introduced sugarloaf pineapples to Switzerland, famously referred to as "Patrick's pineapple." WAD's growth led to a move to Ghana Industrial Commercial Estate (GICEL) in 2003, adding mangoes and papaya to their export lineup.

Certified organic in 2004, they joined forces with FAO on a poverty alleviation project. Expanding across other regions, WAD evolved into Wad African Foods Ltd in 2005, establishing a processing facility in GICEL by 2012.
