Our chocolate factory has been in rural Ghana Since 2020

Our global vision

Use business to end poverty

Our mission

Create 10,000 climate-friendly jobs in Africa

Our values

impact-oriented, transparent, respectful, environmentally conscious, visionary

Dear investors,

i founded fairafric in 2016 with a simple motivation - to fight a crying injustice: only about 5% of global chocolate sales reach where the cocoa is grown, in West Africa!

With the construction of a modern, solar-powered chocolate factory in rural Ghana, fairafric has already impressively demonstrated that it is possible to produce world-class chocolate even in cocoa-growing countries.

While Fairtrade remains in colonial structures (Africa provides raw materials), we have shown with our customers that value creation in Africa has a real chance. Now it is time to utilize our new production capacity, create more jobs and pay as much premium as possible to our cocoa farmers.

I am very proud to be part of this journey and look forward to continuing it with you in the future. I will continue to go full throttle and make sure that every euro invested will write a piece of chocolate history!

Yours sincerely, Hendrik Reimers

Your investment in the SDGs

We are achieving tremendous impact in 7 of 17 SDGs across all dimensions of sustainability.

1. We will expand the capacity of our drop line. Our current drop line runs 24 hours a day and we are able to meet the existing demand.

2. We will increase our capacity for handmade chocolate products and acquire better equipment to meet the high demand from our B2B customers.

3. Building a marketing and sales team in Ghana, and intensifying our distribution channels in Europe.

We expect to be profitable from 2025 onwards. As we have to pay interest and repayments of over 1,000,000€ in 2023 and our ingredient warehouses and intermediate storage facilities have to increase significantly to accommodate the upcoming growth, we will still be in the red for 2023.

Through our new Visitor Center, we also want to give our customers the opportunity to get a deep look into our operations. The factory visit will be combined with a visit to our farmer communities, all in one day! Unique in the world!

Da die Aktien unbesichert ausgeben werden, kann es zum Totalverlust Deiner Anlage kommen. fairafric ist noch nicht profitabel, daher sind für die Sicherstellung der Liquidität weitere Investitionen, sowie der Erfolg der aktuellen Kampagne notwendig. Eine weitere Finanzierungsrunde mit Institutionellen Investoren soll zeitnah durchgeführt werden, hierfür sind die ersten Committments vorhanden. Dennoch besteht das Risiko, dass die Runde nicht geschlossen werden kann. Investiere daher auf gar keinen Fall Geld, das Du unbedingt brauchst.

Das öffentliche Angebot startet am 19.09.2023 und läuft bis alle Aktien (52.301 Stück) gezeichnet wurden.

Da es sich um eine Neuausgabe von Aktien handelt, wird der Preis von fairafric festgelegt. Dies haben wir in Absprache mit Expert*innen, neuen Investor*innen, unseren Bestandsaktionär*innen und Berechnungen gemacht. Bei den Berechnungen haben wir uns auf der einen Seite die Entwicklung seit der letzten Bewertung angeschaut, die Kosten, die entstehen würden, wenn man das Unternehmen nochmal so aufbauen würde und wir haben die zukünftigen Cash Flows abgezinst, sowie die aktuelle Marktlage berücksichtigt im Vergleich mit Benchmarkt Unternehmen.

Die Bewertung wurde in dem Zuge gemeinsam mit Institutionellen Anlegern auf €11 Millionen festgelegt.

Die fairafric AG ist nicht an der Börse gelistet (dies ist auch rein regulatorisch frühestens in ein paar Jahren möglich). Um dennoch eine Handelbarkeit herzustellen, haben wir mit einem Dienstleister eine
Art Schwarzes Brett aufgebaut, über die Käufer*innen und Verkäufer*innen zusammenfinden können. Hier geht es zur Plattform.
