La Vivrière is an SME specialized in the transformation and commercialization of local cereals (millet, corn, cowpea, fonio).

Offering a wide range of traditional African and typical Senegalese products under the brand name “WIIW”, La Vivrière is known on the local market but also exports to the European Union, the United States, Canada and the rest of Africa. In 2019, La Vivrière became the Société d’Exploitation des Céréales Africaines du Sénégal (SECAS) after FONSIS and Teranga Capital joined its capital.
