Immersion 360° PROPARCO
The Sri Lankan company MA’s Food was founded in 1986 and specialises in producing foods using spices and coconut. The company sources its food locally, preferably from smallholders whom it helps to adopt responsible farming practices, and employs at least 50% of women, many of them in management positions. In 2016, the Indian-based management fund Aavishkar – of which Proparco is a shareholder – invested 2 million dollars in MA’s food to enable it to continue to grow its business.
