At just 22, Ibrahim Ben Aziz Konaté is a business leader and the founder of Poultry d’Or who displays great ambitions and even greater potential for success.
His inspiration for this business came from a documentary in which he saw that Côte d’Ivoire continues to import poultry and he saw that there a gap in the market that needed to be fullfilled.
“I observed the market, studied on the Internet and learned from those who had already done a business model similar to mine. I relied on the weaknesses of my direct competitors to understand how I could better serve the consumers.” said Ibrahim.
Poultry d’Or is a company that produces and distributes fresh poultry products and agro-foods. Their products are slaughtered, cleaned, packaged and delivered all in the same day! The company specialises in the production and distribution of agri-food products and they aim to sell chicken at competitive prices directly to the consumer.
