AfricaLive: Please tell readers a bit about the DNA of Federated Commodities, and your inspiration for operating in the agricultural sector?

Hajia Maria Adamu: Federated Commodities was incorporated in March 1996 just four years after the government decided to privatise the industry. We used to have Jet PVC as the sole buyer before the government privatised things to encourage competition in the marketing of cocoa.

Federated Commodities Limited (FEDCo), in partnership with Walter Matter and Valrhona SA, has constructed a six-unit classroom block with toilet facilities and a mechanised bore-hole for the Atwereboanda M/A Junior High School in the Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality of the Western Region, at a total cost of GH¢8885,882.
