SUSTAINABLY SOURCED & HARVESTED FROM MALAWI.
Malawi is the poorest country in Africa and we have formed a close relationship with Malawian families who we have educated on the potential of Moringa seed as a cash crop. They are committed to harvesting Moringa for us and have as a result seen great financial and social benefits over the past years. We have been consistent buyers from these communities with benefit sharing agreements which have developed a long-term trust. We will work with the communities to enhance their delivery of raw material to us thus ensuring you continuity of supply.
