Handcrafted Kombo Butter

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Kombo butter is made from the seeds of a tropical West African tree called Pycnanthus angolensis, which is also known as the "African nutmeg". The fruits had been going to waste but now Agnes Amoah, the first farmer to sell kombo nuts to Baraka, has encouraged other women in her community to collect them too. This helps to provide a source of income and has also prevented the kombo nut trees from being cut for timber. The tall trees provide natural shade and ecosystem biodiversity for cocoa crops.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural wild-crafted kombo butter.

WHY CHOOSE BARAKA
