SUPERFOOD OF AFRICA
The food of the future. The future of food. Africa is home to one of healthiest and most sustainable foods with only one challenge : they have been forgotten or neglected in favor of more familiar and "cash" crops.
75% of the global food supply only comes from 12 plants and 5 animal species. Just 3 plants make up 60% of our calories from plants (rice, maize and wheat). In reality, there are between 20,000 and 50,000 edible plants of which 120 to 150 are regularly consumed by humans. This narrow diet does not get us the right amount of nutrients our body needs and puts a huge amount of pressure on the planet resources.
Superfood of Africa is part of the solution : delivering alternative healthy diet with natural, highly nutritious, tasty and traditional African crops while securing rural prosperity and supporting the ecosystem. While we do that, we also celebrate Africa's rich cultural heritage and its positive stories.
We disrupt the healthy eating space with crops that tell the stories of the past and pave the way to the future.
