Soon after joining Yalelo I realized that challenges abound, both business orientated internal challenges and external challenges unique to Africa. How fantastic, as challenges are just hidden opportunities waiting to be solved to further enhance business success. And what better reward than overall nutritional impact through the supply of top-quality fish regionally. Working in Africa means you are never bored!

Ulric Daniel – CEO Yalelo Zambia

Being the CEO of a dairy company in Ethiopia has been lifechanging. Every day brings new lessons and challenges, I'm proud to lead a team that's making a meaningful impact in the local dairy industry. An experience I will tell my grandchildren about.

Merijn Goris – CEO Holland Dairy

Setting up a company from scratch in Africa is an adventure. Learning every day, getting in touch with a variety of people and facing new challenges, gives me a lot of energy. Handling multiple topics every day, results in an agenda difficult to plan, “Never a dull moment” really comes to life in Tanzania! Knowing the impact Mapinga Premium Foods will have on the potato value chain and therefore communities in Tanzania makes it even better.
