Outgrower Schemes

Ellah Lakes is committed to working productively with our host communities to achieve a win-win situation. Under our outgrower scheme, we will partner with local farmers in the host communities of our plantations in an arrangement where we provide them with high quality seedlings of various crops. We will also provide them with fertilizers and other inputs to ensure optimal yields. We will share revenues from the harvest with the local farmers that participate in the scheme.

This arrangement provides local host communities with a stake in the success of our platform and have an incentive to ensure the overall success and safety of the plantations.
