Our Community Trade marula oil comes from the Eudafano Women’s Co-operative in northern Namibia. The women hand-select the marula fruits, then the nuts are extracted and dried in the sun. The kernels are cold-pressed to release the oil. The 1,750 women involved in the project report that the benefits to them go beyond money. It also helps to give them a sense of independence, business management and confidence. To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.
