Moringa helps farmers.
No improvement without education.
That the Moringa tree is a special tree we already knew, and that this tree is known from fresh, cooked or dried leaves without loss of nutritional value as vitamins, calcium, iron, antioxidants and the 9 essential amino acids is known.
But that this Moringa tree also ensures that farmers get a better life is less known. These farmers who until recently cultivated cassava or bananas or corn etc where after the harvest was not paid the promised price is widely known. Moringa farmers receive a predetermined price for their harvest on contract so that the farmers can also work on their future, send their children to school, have water and a toilet and thus build a better social life.
No improvement without education:
Our farmers receive every Month a 2-day training in agriculture, says CEO and Founder Jan Camp of Baca-Villa Productions Co Ltd from Cambodia.
It is very important to us that all parties are thought of, not just the business model.
If you want to deliver quality to your customers you have to start with the farmers.
Everyone likes to hear the term social responsibility but forget how it arises and what you have to do to really do and be.
Consumers will also have to understand that something more will have to be paid for this.
Small scales, biodiversity, sustainable organic products without pesticides as opposed to large-scale chemistry agriculture industry costs a little more and really not much more, your health is worth more.
Everyone talks today about supply chain but forget that if we do not have farmers we have no products. Paying attention to the farmers there begins everything and that is education. We explain to farmers how to increase biodiversity why that is important. We explain why organic farming is much better and how do you grow that. We explain techniques that can generate higher yields. Then you work on a perfect supply chain.
Women play an important role in this, they manage the money and work hard, says Jan.
From Moringa seeds we can increase the Moringa farms for leaves. We will continue to expand the oil properties of the Moringa, and there is a future for the farmers. By growing the Moringa trees only for oil means a new future for many farmers, from the seeds and flowers of the Moringa we can get a lot out of them, Extracting the flowers, cold press of the Moringa seeds, the demand is enormous and will only but increase. Form the seeds we can make many Oil products, for the food chain, for the cosmetics industry, pure diesel, water purification etc etc too many to mention.
Here, too, it is important that our own staff also receive education, because extracting oil and pressing is a technique that you have to learn the latest techniques, and learn about international requirements.
Education and Moringa must be closely linked to each other.
Through collaboration with Universities and a good professional quality department, new Moringa products can also emerge.
The Moringa market is still in full swing in the coming years, but do not forget the farmers when you buy a product.
Data show that Moringa “is experiencing explosive growth”, with a growth of 460% between 2014-2017 …. That promised some more for the coming years, we can still make many farmers happy.
Enjoy your Moringa 😉
