Our Impact

One of the poorest regions on the planet, Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from crippling poverty and unemployment. With few jobs and little industry, rural communities depend on farming for survival, with many farmers earning less than $2 per day.

During peak season, fruit supplies meet demand and prices drop very low. On average, farmers only sell up to a third of their harvest; leaving the vast majority of fruit unsold or left behind to rot.

Drying fruit opens new markets, creates jobs for the local community, and extends the life and prosperity of the food supply.

Mavuno Harvest works with these farming communities to help them prosper, and introduce natural and organic dried fruit to markets worldwide.
