International Sales Manager
I always wanted my work to have a broader positive impact on society, which lead me to pursue a degree in Development. Unfortunately, I felt discouraged by seemingly never-ending cases of aid being injected into projects, and yet little or no long-term transformation being achieved. Aduna for me came as a fresh opportunity and idea; whereby in creating a global demand for underutilised African ingredients, we are bringing about a virtuous circle where people are empowered at both ends. African positivity and vibrancy is transmitted through our products, whilst creating sustainable incomes for millions of rural households in Africa.
