Every year, Forbes goes in search of some of the brightest young entrepreneurs, leaders and billionaires of tomorrow to be featured in its 30 Under 30 list across the world.

This year, however, Forbes Africa features, and for the first time, had over 90 young individuals in the continent across three industries – Business, Technology and Creative

We are particularly excited about this years list as it features Ghana’s very own Abraham Omani Quaye, Founder and CEO of Farmart Ghana in the 30 under 30 class of 2018

Find below a brief of Farmart story shared in the Forbes magazine.

“After completing his undergraduate degree in Agricultural Science, he decided to go into farming. During his search for land, he came across several farmers who complained of their produce going waste. They will have to then sell their produce off cheaply to middlemen to avoid getting nothing out of their hard work. He also discovered in Ghana, farmers suffer over 30% post-harvest losses which is really unfortunate.
Quaye was motivated to not just be a farmer but a digital farmer and help other farmers have access to ready market, reduce post harvest losses and increase return on their investments. He founded Farmart, an online farmers’ market that links farmers to households and businesses.”

We believe this feature is a great encouragement for the guys at Farmart to push our efforts on improving the lives of farmers by linking them to ready market, reduce post-harvest losses and increase return on investments whiles helping consumers have easy access to affordable fresh farm produce at their doorstep.
