COMMUNITY FAIR TRADE MARULA OIL FROM NAMIBIA

Marula oil comes from the ripened fruit of the marula tree which is native to many parts of central and southern Africa. The women of the co-operative extract the kernels from ripe marula fruits by hand, then cold-press the kernels at their factory to extract the marula oil inside.

THE SUPPLIER

The Eudafano Women's Cooperative is owned and run entirely by women. They tell us that the experience of trading and of setting up their own factory has given them entrepreneurial skills and greater status in their communities.

THE COMMUNITY

Namibia has rich diamond deposits, a spectacular landscape, diverse flora and fauna and a growing tourism industry. But Namibia also has high unemployment. Between 2006 and 2009, 37.6% of the total labour force was unemployed. In many underprivileged areas, women, in particular, struggle to earn an income.
