Sodepa at the livestock fair in Ngaoundere
Sodepa took active part in the Djoulde Dabbadji 2018 livestock fair in Ngaoundere in the Adamaoua Region, from 17 to 19 December 2018. The annual event which has been attracting livestock breeders from all over Cameroon for the past 5 editions was inaugurated on December 17 by the Minister of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries. The Livestock Development Corporation exhibited its cattle products during this livestock festival. Healthy-looking animals in their stand bear witness to the support that SODEPA has enjoyed from the government of Cameroon in the promotion of second-generation livestock.
This year’s theme, « milk production: a basis for sustainable livestock farming », is part of the creation of a value chain around milk for optimal coverage of the national and sub-regional market. Apart from Cameroonians, this 5th edition of the National Livestock Fair also featured livestock farmers and craftspeople from Chad.

Youths have made their way into the organisation with half a dozen appointments to different posts of responsibility. This confidence in the youths by Management is measured by the decision to appoint dynamic and committed youths in posts of responsibility.
SODEPA being a citizen company, its main objective is to contribute to the promotion of a modern livestock sector guaranteeing growth, employment and self-sufficiency in animal proteins by 2035. This is the result of work carried out upstream which provides responsive and quality management solutions based on a young and dynamic team.
These newly promoted staff are equipped for their new responsibilities. They must accompany the organisation in its transformation towards a benchmark agro-industry in the Central African sub-region, offering tailor-made solutions.
