We are aware of the Ivorian food and economic social context but we are keen to take into account all the parameters essential to the economic and sustainable revitalization of this country.
The second objective is to distribute and commercialize the Polyter (water-retaining and fertilizer for agriculture and reforestation) to targets such as farmers or farming companies.
The third objective is to develop a magazine that is already present in Belgium. "Together Magazine" offers free content (personal development, well-being, technology, economy, life style, fashion, travel...), inspires and allows our readers to realize these dreams.

SAMILIA Foundation is a public utility foundation, established in 2007, that acts on the field to alert potential victims to human trafficking that affects the most vulnerable populations to exploit them. Education and information are key in reducing trafficking in human beings.
More recently, a new kind of human trafficking has started to appear in a popular environment that attracts young people who want to follow their dreams: the football industry. Thousands of football players from Ivory Coast, Senegal or Cameroon are willing to do anything to escape from their current misery. Entire families and villages – believing in the miracle of the European Eldorado – save up together to send their promising children to Europe to play football. Consequently, West Africa has become a hotspot for all sorts of traffickers in human beings.
In order to alert young footballers and prevent them from jumping at shady transfer proposals to Europe, SAMILIA now has joined forces with the football federations and the Ministries of Sport of Ivory Coast, Benin and Senegal. To tackle this new form of human trafficking schools, academies and relevant institutions need to be involved, not only in Africa, but also in Europe.​

Sofiex, founded in 1976, aims to provide raw materials, chemicals, machinery and spare parts to our customers in Africa. Our location in Belgium, in the heart of Europe, has put us in an ideal position to source goods and benefit from the export-orientated banking facilities afforded to Belgium’s foreign trade partners.

This successful relationship has lasted more than 40 years, despite enduring difficult market conditions, and made us stronger to face the future in a region with considerable potential for development: Africa, our passion.

We have deliberately limited ourselves to specialize in African countries where we have established a solid customer base and detailed local knowledge. We are therefore proud to offer a personalised service according to customer’s needs. We prefer to say: “We don’t sell, we help you to buy”.

Our extensive network of suppliers, as well as our independence from suppliers, allows us to provide a unique approach to solve all problems involved in sourcing and logistics.

Scope of activity:
Whilst we mainly concentrate our activities in the fields of the plastic, chemicals, steel and their related industries, we are often requested to provide an endless variety of products for the African market. In addition to our everyday business, we like to look for new challenges and enjoy the opportunity to prove ourselves in new ventures. This testifies our ability to be flexible and competitive and to react quickly to the current market conditions.
