Value Proposition
  • Salt has a very high purity of 99.3% in chloride of sodium
  • With a population of 650 thousand, the total addressable market is equal to 5200 tones, the assumption is that the markets share in year one is 25% growing to 50% in the third year, and reaching 80% by the sixth year
  • Growing regional market with insufficient local supply compared to demand levels, and regional need for high quality salt with purity over 99.3%
  • No local competition, all salt products are imported from India and Madagascar
  • Significant infrastructure improvements and sustained political stability
  • For the export market, an assessment of the salt market in East Africa shows that the potential countries for Comorian salt exports are: Seychelles, Mauritius, Mayotte and Tanzania
