Community-based baobab processing pilot in Kilifi nearing completion

The construction of the community-based baobab processing facility for the production of high-quality baobab powder and oil with and for the local communities is nearing completion. With the harvesting season for baobab starting in a few weeks’ time in Kilifi, construction works have been finalized and the majority of equipment has been installed, so that as of now the final finishing touches are in progress.

Alongside the construction works, approximately 60 farmers from the local communities have recently been trained in baobab harvesting, storage and processing in order to ensure that high quality baobab products will be produced.
