GOOD FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE WOMEN WHO MAKE IT, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

SUSTAINABLE development
GOALS

Passed unanimously by the United Nations in September 2015 the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have quickly emerged as the primary global framework for development, supported by every country in the world and wholeheartedly embraced by progressive governments, industries, organizations, and businesses everywhere. Baraka Shea Butter is no different.

At Baraka, we help our producers work towards meeting their community and sustainable development goals. Your purchases from Baraka directly support the development for the communities and families in northern Ghana that produce our products and have an impact on the SDGs. Income generation, women and gender, education, environment, and healthcare are some of the SDG priorities the women who make Baraka Shea Butter have identified. We are active supporters of this developmental framework, from our organizational structure down to our core values. Every decision is made in the best interest of our clients, staff, producers and the environment to align with our guiding principles:


  • COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND SOCIAL VALUE CREATION

    Baraka looks for innovative and sustainable ways to support the ongoing social and economic development in the areas where we produce our goods. We want the residents to benefit from business activities in their communities.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

    The earth’s natural capital is the ultimate source of wealth and value creation but it is fragile. Conventional approaches to business growth have threatened our resources but Baraka believes a more careful, creative, and thoughtful approach can protect our ecosystem while meeting and exceeding environmental standards.

  • FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

    At Baraka, we want to build a company that can do good and still be successful as a business. Our operations are structured not only to support our principles but to provide strong financial returns so we can achieve our objectives, support the communities that make our products, and continue to provide for our family in Canada.

Baraka Shea Butter is committed to our purpose and values. We are a small business, and our development projects are small but meaningful. They do make a real difference for families and communities, and with customers like you supporting our business and supporting the development directly, we can help even more families and more communities.

Some customers have asked to be more involved in supporting development projects and have organized fund-raisers, donated directly, sponsored someone’s education, etc. That support makes a huge difference!
