DAVET stands for the name of each child of Adeline–a nod to the company’s overarching
mission to provide opportunities and improved livelihoods to youth and women in the country.
DAVET produces fruits and vegetables in Rwanda—the land of a thousand hills. Since 2015, we
have worked with several NGOs in Bugesera, focusing on training farmers on good horticultural
We currently have four farm sites in Bugesera, three of which are cooperatives and one owned
by DAVET. We also have three farms in Kamonyi, one of which is owned by DAVET, one out-
grower farm, and one cooperative. Together, our farm hectarage totals more than 43 hectares.
Our experienced and skilled agronomists coach and conduct daily follow-ups with our cooperative farms, teaching them everything from land preparation to post-harvest handling.
We also provide agro-inputs to cooperatives, allowing them to pay back after selling their harvests. This creates opportunities for farmers with little to no capital to develop their operations.
Through the daily farm monitoring, we support cooperative leadership with all necessary advice and practices which their members need to adhere to to ensure quality and quantity harvests.
We buy produce from the various cooperatives and sell them to various buyers in regional and international markets, creating opportunities for growth and improving livelihoods.
