Family-run shea butter processor and bulk exporter to the USA.
Shea nuts are gathered by women in northern Ghana, who traditionally process them in a time-consuming and inefficient process before making them into shea butter or soap. Mother Shea’s management team has identified processing efficiencies and, together with SDU support, is investing in small-scale processing technologies to improve the quantity and quality of shea nuts. This will enable female smallholder growers to attain organic and Fair Trade certification and improve their income potential.
