Established in 2007, the company was founded by Edao Abdi, an entrepreneur with a dream to supply high quality pulses sourced in Ethiopia to customers around the world. Edao previously worked for many years with an international non profit organization and seeks now to continue creating positive impact in his community and country through business.
Edao sources quality Ethiopian pulses from local farmers and co-operatives and currently employs more than 60 workers.
Mission: To be a trusted partner and supplier of quality pulses for our global buyers. We aim to create value for buyers by fulfilling their pulses needs.
Vision: Position Ethiopia in the international map for the highest quality pulses.
Our Values: Best quality Transparency Social responsible Ambitious We care
Our company mission is in line with the Ethiopian development plans and also provides us with a framework for corporate social responsibility. We believe in giving back to the communities in which Edao operates by working closely with farmers, unions, and farmers cooperative.
We support efforts to help Ethiopian farmers (large scale and small scale) as well as efforts to modernize Ethiopian agriculture. The company provides pre and and post-harvest training to the farmers and co-operatives it sources from and also charges a fair price. For the next years, Edao is already working with 100 farmers to move to organic farming.
We believe this will further improve the agricultural sector in Ethiopia and guarantee the supply of increasingly high quality products to our customers.
