Afarinick Company Limited (ACL) is a subsidiary of CJ Commodities Limited and a sister company of AMP Logistics (GH) Limited borne out of the need to contribute to the agricultural sector through the provision of an all-inclusive supply chain management service ranging from farm management services, marketing of produce, input, and quality planting material supply.
Primarily operationalized to support sustainability activities of both CJ Commodities Limited and AMP, Afarinick has garnered an in-depth understanding of the cocoa value chain in Ghana. Afarinick’s services array has been designed to support cocoa farmers produce cocoa sustainable. In the past year, ACL has raised 80,000 plantain suckers, 200,000 cocoa seedlings and 50,000 desirable shade trees for the benefit of cocoa farmers within the CJ Commodities Limited supply chain as part of the CJ sustainable sourcing program, improving access of these farmers to quality planting materials.
Additionally, ACL is committed to contributing to carbon reduction in line with the Global standards. In collaboration with AMP and likeminded cocoa processing companies ACL has developed a Carbon Neutral Project to offset AMP’s carbon footprint because of the transportation services AMP provides. The haulage of cocoa beans and cocoa products amongst other commodities for stakeholders within the value chain results in the emission of carbon. The emissions are tracked through the Carbon Neutral project and offset through the promotion of agroforestry for carbon sequestration within the CJ supply chain.
This falls in line with the overall objective of ACL to contribute positively to sustainable production of cocoa, climate change mitigation and the promotion of agroforestry within the cocoa value chain.
