An integration across the value chain: our main challenges

CFAO displays its strategy across the entire value chain based on its historical expertise in import, wholesale and logistics, in the automotive, health and consumer goods sectors.  Upstream, the Group’s industrial activities promote local production and contribute to greater autonomy in the regions, as with our automobile assembly plants, pharmaceutical production in the Maghreb and the new multi-purpose factory concept in Côte d’ivoire.  Downstream, its distribution network, the largest in Africa, ensures the marketing of an adapted and affordable offer for the benefit of the largest populations.

CFAO is also developing in the B2C sector with a car distribution offer in South Africa and the development of a network of shopping malls in West Africa.
