Three young Gambians start country’s first paper bag company

A sigh of relief at least for the country as three young Gambians stepped up to provide the much-anticipated paper bags to replace plastic bags, which the government has banned.

Andrew Sambou, one of the proprietors of M.B.E Paper Bag Company, said they have a vision of significantly contributing to the socio-economic development of the country via youth empowerment, domestic production and maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

“M.B.A Paper Bag Company is into the production and sale of paper bags to the local market, as well as public sensitisation on the dangers of using plastic bags since the Government through the National Environment Agency has banned the use and importation of plastic bags.”

Andrew’s company was the 2nd runner- up of the annual National Business Plan Competition 2015, organised by The Gambia Investment and Export Promotion Agency (GIEPA).

The young men are now training their staff, and according to Andrew, M.B.E Paper Bag Company will be launched soon.
