Burkina Faso is the first country where Antenna  France started its actions in 2003. 2 farms were successfully launched.
Under Antenna France’s lead, the “Association de Producteurs de Spiruline du Burkina” – APSB – (the Association of Spirulina Producers of Burkina) was born in 2006 to bring together 6 to 7 producers and mutualise their actions.
In February 2010 the APSB organised its third Pan African Conference on Spirulina.
