About Lion Mountains
The goal of Lion Mountains is to develop large-scale commercial agriculture in Sierra Leone, generating superior returns for our shareholders whilst also delivering a profound social impact to our partner communities. We are headquartered in Bo, where our mill is sited, and have a land lease at Senehun in Kamajei Chiefdom. Retail outlets (primarily our network of kiosks) are currently in Bo District and Moyamba District. Lion Mountains buys raw rice from a network of around 3,000 outgrower farmers in Bo District, Moyamba District, Pujehun District and Tonkolili District.
Lion Mountains has developed excellent community relations and enjoys high levels of support among all stakeholders, from President Koroma downwards.
The company is led on the ground by Managing Director Mike Gericke, who brings over 40 years of experience of farming in Africa.
We are strongly committed to the prosperity of Sierra Leone and aim to return the country to being a net exporter of rice, as it was many years ago. The natural endowment offers excellent potential for commercial agricultural production and wealth creation.
