Learn how Baraka has partnered with NCRC (Nature Conservation Research Centre) to develop the Kombo Nut as an income generation and ecosystem conservation activity for women and families in Ghanaian villages.
Kombo Butter, which has amazing pain relief and other natural qualities, is made from the seed/nut of the Kombo Tree. The Kombo Tree grows naturally in cocoa forests, producing shade and supporting ecosystem diversity and conservation. Despite its amazing properties, logistics, cost, remoteness, and other factors have prevented it from becoming well known and utilized in North America and Europe.
Baraka has partnered with Ghana’s Nature Conservation Research Centre to begin the process of commercializing Kombo Butter and making it available to the global market in a way that maximizes social, economic and environmental impact in the communities where it is sourced.
