Community-based Enterprise fact finding mission in Kilifi, Kenya

Under the lead of the NGO Wild Living Resources, the Baofood project partners Phytotrade Africa, ttz Bremerhaven and Rhine-Waal University recently met in Kilifi, Kenya for a fact finding mission to pave the way forward for the set-up of a community based enterprise to produce high-quality baobab products. Different producers and processors of baobab products in the area were visited in order to identify the optimal organizational and technological set-up of the enterprise. The implementation of the pilot processing unit in Kenya aims to make advanced baobab products available to the community, thereby contributing to improved nutrition and food security and, at a larger scale, demonstrating the technical feasibility and economic viability of the project.
