So-B-Green was co-founded in 2018 by Charles Tellier and Julien Le Brizaut as a result from their common desire to foster positive and sustainable change in the commodities’ value chains.
Since then, So-B-Green has acted in West Africa and Europe as a multiple service provider, from consultancy to trading and brokage activities. Our team is driven by a changemaker and entrepreneurial spirit and seeks to be a key player in the agribusiness industry.
Promoting impactful and sustainable supply chains by adding social, economic and environmental value to agricultural commodities.
Supporting traceability, professionalization of outgrowers and cooperatives, farmers’ and households’ resilience and landscape resilience.
Contributing to promote transparent and deforestation- and child-labour-free supply chains.
Through 3 business units, we have built an ecosystem of services that tends to fill the gaps where need be in the complex sectors where we operate.
While our solutions are designed for outgrowers, cooperatives, traders and industrial actors, we equally work with international and local Non Governmental Organizations and public institutions.
Our flexibility, innovations and network of accredited partners all along the value chains enable us to offer taylor-made and impactful solutions to our clients of all sizes.
Through strategic out-of-the-box thinking and sustainability programmes design and implementation, our team of experts help defining ways to reposition outgrowers and clients at the center of the supply chains. From sustainability strategy design to field work, we tend to simultaneously empower outgrowers and fulfill our clients’ sustainability ambitions.
