SENAR (Sénégal Arachide) is a Senegalese family-owned SME located in Dakar, created in 1982 by Mrs. Lydie Sagbo, specialized in the processing and marketing of peanuts. SENAR is the first Senegalese company to market peanuts in Dakar supermarkets.

In 1987, Lydie Sagbo expanded her offer by proposing cashews and corn (popcorn) under the name of LYSA's delights (in reference to Lysa Sagbo).

In 2015, Sylvie Sagbo Gommard, his daughter, took over the management of the family business and in 2017, signed a partnership with the impact investment fund TERANGA CAPITAL in order to support SENAR in its growth trajectory. This gave birth, the same year to LYSA & CO, a new company carrying the brand SENAR les délices de Lysa.

This partnership will allow the upgrade of the production tool with the construction of a new processing unit.

In 36 years of existence, the family business is becoming a success story in the field of agribusiness with distinctions such as the encouragement prize at the SIA 2018 (International Agricultural Show in Paris) and the respect of values such as the label "made in Senegal", "100% natural" "hand made".
