IN 2012, FRUSTRATED FARMERS ASKED US, "WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS TREE?"
Aid organizations had encouraged these farmers to plant and harvest this slight, unimpressive tree for nutrition, but its fast-growing properties and the donors' sparse follow up only produced frustration. It was regarded as little more than a weed.
And that was how we started our journey with "nature's miracle tree" -moringa.
Originating from Southeast Asia, the moringa tree had found a favorable environment in the tropical climate of Ghana. The fertile soils and perfect conditions make for a superior quality moringa crop, its leaves bursting with nutrition.
We have made it our lives' goal to uncover every secret the moringa tree has to offer, and to bring these benefits directly to you to enjoy.
Today, Minga Foods works with over 2,300 farmers in Ghana to improve their nutrition and livelihoods through the moringa tree. We have helped them earn $400,000+ additional income through our work and have planted over 200,000 trees.
