Our mission is to empower rural African women through community processing of the highest quality natural products, practicing a socially and environmentally responsible business while ensuring the value addition at source is maximised.
We work with local cooperatives, empowering women in a sustainable, profitable manner.
We offer a fully traceable supply chain and logistics from start to finish: the collection of the nuts and seeds in West Africa; the processing in communities; the refining/filtering and packing in state-of-the-art facilities in Europe; and the transport and delivery to our worldwide clients.
Value addition is maximized at source (directly to women in the local village) by processing in the traditional hand-crafted manner, instead of using mechanical or industrial extraction models. Business is undertaken using 100% short-term pre-financing of local purchase orders and the women are empowered to negotiate the price through a jointly agreed memorandum of understanding (MOU), which in turn guarantees that quality and quantity is always delivered to SFC.
The Savannah Fruits Company is headquartered in Tamale, Northern Region Ghana and was founded in 2006 on the belief that business can, and should, produce social good and contribute to the sustainability of our planet’s ecosystem.
