Event organizers said "Small Business Big Impact", and cited Baraka's comprehensive approach to ensuring positive social and environmental impact throughout its supply chain, including especially the work with women and families in remote rural villages where Baraka’s work affects thousands of women.  They noted that what was especially impressive was Baraka’s ability to enable their customers and the entire downstream supply chain to embrace and support this impact.


Wayne Dunn, Baraka’s CEO, noted that:

“Baraka was founded on the belief that business can and should make a difference and our team and our customers work hard to make this happen every day.  

While we are very proud of the impact Baraka’s work has and the way our team in Ghana keeps it central to all activities, the real credit goes to our customers and their customers.  

When they embrace the impact, share it with their customers and use it to demonstrate their own commitment to social justice and environmental stewardship it makes it strong and sustainable.  

Baraka really is the agent of our customers and their customers. Our impact comes from them.”
