(Business in Cameroon) - According to Samuel Foyou, Board Chairman of Société camerounaise de fermentations (Fermencam), a distillery with Cameroonian capital, submitted an application to the public authorities to obtain a land concession on close to 5,000 acres. “We have already acquired 1,482 acres,” he explained.

The Fermencam board chairman has indicated that the land will be used to cultivate guavas, pineapples and mangoes. These fruits, he explains, will enable Fermencam, a company specialised in the production of spirits, to start producing natural juices for the European market, specified Mr Foyou.

Fermencam’s diversification will enable the company to increase its sales, which reached 12 billion FCfa in 2013, up by 3 billion FCfa relative to 2012, according to Managing Director, Maurice Djeutchoua. The company has a staff of 800.
