One of the poorest regions on the planet, Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from crippling poverty and unemployment. With few jobs and little industry, rural communities depend on farming for survival, with many farmers earning less than $2 per day.
Mavuno Harvest was founded to help these farming communities prosper, and introduce natural and organic dried fruit to markets worldwide.
During peak season, fruit supplies meet demand and prices drop very low. On average, farmers only sell up to a third of their harvest; leaving the vast majority of fruit unsold or left behind to rot.
Mavuno Harvest works with local fruit drying facilities in Uganda and Burkina Faso to purchase the remaining harvest. Drying fruit opens new markets, creates jobs for the local community, and extends the life and prosperity of the food supply.
Mavuno Harvest increases the value of African fruit products by opening new markets. Nutritious dried fruits like mango, banana, pineapple, jackfruit and papaya are grown organically and produced without added sugar or preservatives.
As a fair trade certified company, Mavuno Harvest works with the farmers to plan social and community projects such as libraries, and health and education centers.
Ethically sourced. Naturally delicious. And making a difference with every bite.
