The baobab is one of the most famous trees in Africa. It is one of Senegal´s landmarks and important in the African tradition. This majestic tree is a very long-lived tree with multipurpose uses. The baobab has long been an important source of human nutrition. Indigenous peoples traditionally use the leaves, bark, roots, fruits and seeds as foodstuffs, as well as in medical applications for humans and animals.

The fruits are collected in West Africa, under the supervision of expertly-qualified professionals. We focuses our activity on abundant species of baobab, whose fruit can be collected with minimal environmental impact. Consequently, the fruits and seeds are the main parts of the plant that are collected, rather than the roots or bark of a particular species.

We use a simple, exclusively mechanical process to obtain the fruit pulp. After the fruit is harvested, the hard outer shell of the fruit is cracked open and the contents are removed. The seeds are then separated from the fibrous material and mesocarp. This is screened to remove further unwanted fibrous and flaky material, leaving a fine mesocarp powder (fruit pulp). Finally, the foodgrade powder is milled and packaged.

The Leaves are cultivated in plantations. They are ready to harvest in June. After picking we dry the leaves in the shadow.
