Growing our impact in African farming communities

by Phil Hughes December 17, 2014

When we grow, we need to source more fruit which means we are buying from more small scale farmers who might not have otherwise had a market for these amazing natural treats.

These farmers are jumping on the opportunity to supply Mavuno Harvest.  It’s a win-win!  Meet some of our farmers here.

Although almost all fruit in rural Uganda is grown organically, farmers need to be trained on U.S. standards (NOP) in order to label their fruit organic in the U.S.  Here’s a few pics from recent trainings in Uganda by one of our amazing Ugandan partners.  First we start in the classroom – then we hit the field.

Try some of our delicious dried fruit today!
