Positive results for world leading clients

Farrelly & Mitchell has worked with a large number of outstanding companies and organisations. Here’s what some of our clients say about working with us.

Forward integrated rice farming and milling project

“We retained Farrelly & Mitchell to develop a forward integrated high-value expansion plan for our farming operation in Ghana. This involved two large-scale land plots totalling 55,000 acres, located in the Northern and Volta regions of the country. The project involved the expansion of existing farming operations, the involvement of a 4,500 member smallholder co-operative or out growers and development of a new rice mill to supply the premium domestic and wider West African consumer rice markets. Farrelly & Mitchell’s on-the-ground expertise and deep financial, strategic and operational experience were invaluable in the development and execution of our plan. We would have no reservation recommending them as a consultancy firm on similar large-scale and complex projects in Africa.”
