Terinfili-Agro CBO (Community Based Organization) Is located in Darsalameh, Jokodu, NBR, The Gambia. Its primary function is to provide food security in the villages of Jokodu. We offer cashew fruit and mango fruit products once the season is over.
We began our operations in 2006 at the request of the state of Louisiana to export the cashew fruit and nuts to New Orleans, Louisiana to provide food and employment to the misplaced people from Hurricane Katrina. The project was approved only to witness the defeat of the Governor of the state and the subsequent cancellation of the project.
In 2007 we revived the project in The Gambia as a way to reduce the spoilage of the cashew/mango and to convert these two fruits into new food sources that can be made available to the Gambia public.
We have been successful over the last five years in creating cashew jam, cashew jelly, cashew cake, cashew juice, cashew vinegar, cashew wine, cashew pepper soup, cashew syrup, cashew honey, cashew chocolate, cashew candy, cashew chutney, and cashew soap (scrub bar). Among others we also produce similar products with mango.
Our aim is to reduce the spoilage of cashew and mango and provide food from these fruits throughout the year.
In 2007 we opened our first cashew fruit processing center in Darsalameh. This center has allowed us to accumulate cashew and mango in abundance.
Since 2011 From the Garden Bakery was created to provide an opportunity to introduce our cashew cake to a wider audience from Bakau and also offers a market to supply local shops and stores with our cake, jam, jelly, vinegar, cashew chocolate, etc.
