Project Description  This matter was supported by the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) and the International Trade Centre (ITC), which both helped to set up eight processing sites for shea butter and sesame seeds in various Nigerian regions. External investors were sought to take over the sites. The Idera Olori Women Co-operative & Credit Society and Beniseed Apex are two cooperatives that are employed on the sites.
   
Scope of Legal Assistance  Sidley drafted a Memorandum of Understanding between the external investors and the shea nut cooperatives to ensure that the farmers benefit from the agreement with the investors.
