Members from the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences visited the BIOFACH trade fair for organic food and agriculture to broaden the network with the baobab community and inform about the project. Project partners (e.g. PhytoTrade Africa) as well as different producers of baobab products (e.g. Berlin-based africrops!, B’Ayoba from Zimbabwe, Baobab Products Mozambique, EcoProducts South Africa, Biomega from Austria, or Matahi from France) and further potential scientific collaborators (e.g. Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin) were met and opportunities for further collaborations explored.
