The Cocoa Bean Story

Learn about the cocoa bean story, how they are grown and harvested and the women and communities who do the work and earn their livelihood from it.

The collection and processing of cocoa beans for Baraka Cocoa Butter is done by smallholder growers in remote villages in Ghana.  Watch and listen as we discuss the process as we stand amongst the platforms of drying cocoa beans.

#KnowYourProducts – a series of informational posts about Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Kombo Butter and the women, families and communities that make it.  We believe the more you know, the better choices you make, the better products you make and the better you can educated and serve your customers

These next lines give you more information about Baraka Shea Butter – read them if interested.

What we hope you take away from this post more than anything is that you impact women, families and communities when you buy shea butter and that it is important to know the source of your shea butter.

It is so easy to have ‘raw and unrefined’ shea butter that was industrially processed, chemically extracted and all the income and impact ripped from the women and given to the factory. See more in this blog https://barakasheabutter.com/sheabutter_blog/unrefined-and-raw-shea-butter/

All Baraka products are harvested and hand processed by women in rural Ghanaian villages using age-old traditions and techniques. It is core to traditional life and to their economic well-being.

You make a difference with every purchase from Baraka, or from people who make products with Baraka Shea Butter.

It has a direct impact on hard-working women and their families.
