Man and Man Enterprise
Efficient, durable cooking stoves for every household in Ghana
Man and Man Enterprise produces and markets efficient biomass cooking stoves which save 40 % on charcoal compared to conventional stoves. The product thus enables substantial savings on fuel costs while reducing deforestation and GHG emissions. Man and Man Enterprise produces and markets highly efficient biomass cooking stoves made from scrap metal. A ceramic lining retains heat, reducing charcoal consumption by 40 %. The stoves cost the same as conventional stoves and have a longer lifetime. In the Ashanti region, the initiative sells hundreds of such “Holy Cook” stoves every week. Man and Man Enterprise plans to increase profitability by integrating lining production into its own operations and by expanding its operations into currently underserved regions in Ghana and neighbouring countries.
Man and Man Enterprise Inc. is responsible for product development, stove manufacturing and marketing.
Tekman Energy Ltd supplies scrap metal sheets for stove cladding and distributes the stoves to retailers in the market.
Ekem Art Pottery Ltd supplies ceramic liners for the stoves.
