Indeed, after successfully labeling the Penja pepper and Oku honey as part of the first phase of this OAPI program, Cameroon wants to make known to the world the particularity of products such as the kilichi of Ngaoundere, Mbouda’s avocados, Lékie shallots, Bafia pineapple, Maroua leather, Mbé white yam, Garoua onion, Pouma stone, etc.

We now know that the labeling contributes to the preservation of traditional knowledge and know-how, while providing an income consisting of producers,” said Denis Loukou Bohousou (photo), Director General of OAPI, to justify the opportunity of this program on geographical indications, supported by the French Development Agency (AFD).
