The story of our moringa
The home of our moringa is an ecologically clean area near Lake Abaya in southern Ethiopia. Here it is produced by a local farming community of women farmers involved in our supplier's fair-trade programme. The women's self-help group grows, harvests and gently dries the moringa in the shade of well-ventilated drying kilns. This produces a commodity of the highest possible organic quality.
Our supplier takes a responsible approach to agriculturetrong> and prides itself on high ethical business standards. It regularly trains the local community and ensures that it has adequate working facilities. The moringa produced from this fair trade project is not only a source of livelihood for many local families. Part of the money from its sale also forms an endowment fund for needy people in the local area.
How moringa powder is produced
Moringa is harvested in the morning or evening so that it does not lose its vitamins and minerals due to direct sunlight. Whole twigs are collected and transported in aerated baskets to the processing site. They are then washed in a mild salt solution and clean water to remove any dirt or microbes. After washing, the twigs are stripped of their leaves and dried in a well-ventilated room. The farmers crush the already dry moringa leaves in the traditional way and sift the powder through a sieve to make it really fine.
The moringa powder is stored in airtight containers, where it awaits export directly to Brno. Part of the production is destined for sale on the Ethiopian local market, which the farmers themselves provide, and is a source of additional income for them.
Our moringa is processed only by hand. There are no machines or higher temperatures involved. This ensures that the moringa does not lose its nutritional value, which is also evident in its beautiful green colour.
