COMACO is a vertically integrated social enterprise that works with smallholder farmers to increase rural incomes and food security while promoting wildlife and environmental conservation in Zambia. The company’s goal is to reduce rural poverty rates and address related socio-economic and environmental consequences of unsustainable farming practices.

COMACO trains former wildlife poachers and smallholder farmers in conservation farming and sustainable agriculture practices, then buys the products that affiliated farmers produce at premium prices to make conservation farming profitable. From there, COMACO’s sub-brand, It’s Wild!, processes the farmers’ produce into 23 value-added food products to both export and sell across Zambia.
