Description:

Fact sheet: Fairtrade Standards for Baobab and for Marula.

Summary / Notes:

In remote communities in Southern Africa, women walk from theirrnvillages to gather the fruit from baobab and marula trees on communal lands. For generations, women have been collecting these fruits to use at home or to sell in local markets to support their families. Many in the area have few possibilities for income since the land is not good for farming and most earn less than US$100 a year. The baobab tree has become a symbol of Africa. This iconic thicktrunked tree can live up to 3,000 years. The pulp and seeds inside the football-sized brown fruit are high in Vitamin C and calcium. The fruit of the marula tree is the size of a golf-ball and golden yellow. It is high in oilrnand protein.
