Fomel Industry and National Industrialization Centre – was established in 1997 to focus on accelerating progress towards Sustainable development with innovative solutions to increase economic value to farmers, from seed to sale as a means of reducing poverty and hunger across Sub Sahara Africa.

According to FAO, It is estimated that about Sixty percent of the African population is employed in agriculture, with more than 80% of all output produced by small-scale farms. Agricultural productivity growth in Africa is about half that seen in other developing economies. Up to 40% of food produced by smallholder farmers in Africa is lost between harvest and consumption

What We Do

FINIC was established to pursue the following aims:

  • Design and manufacture machines systems for use in agro processing with other applications. With that, a reduction in import dependency and
    many other positive attendant consequences will be accomplished.
  • Research into alternative sources of energy using agricultural waste to provide energy for the kitchens and other useful forms.
  • Provide skills training in Industrial Mechanics in a real factory situation.
  • Manufacture food products from produce grown in Sierra Leone.

FINIC- has used performance as the cog around which all innovations hubs. The industry prides itself on improving operating performance by reducing the numbers of customer’s complaints about its products. The matrixes used for internal and external achievements are parallel:

  • Successful research into equipment which are built in home conditions and are likely to survive long operations and reduce down time.
  • Establishment of a rural innovation center at which palm kernel shells are now transformed into carbonized briquettes/charcoal to replace wood charcoal without cutting down a single tree.
  • Successful design and construction of a Motor Cycle drawn Ambulance that helps in conveying pregnant women from the villages to the health care centers.
  • Successful invention of an equipment that can carbonize over a hundred kilograms of rice husk in transforming it into charcoal/briquettes.
  • Successful invention of a multi-functional dryer for a wide range  of agricultural produce
  • Successes in transforming the lives of Ex-combatants through the provision of skills training soon after the rebel war in the country
  • The successful invention of a condom vending machine for the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFP)
Certificate of Achievement
Recognition and Awards
