Head of Health Food Retail
I was initially drawn to Aduna because of the health benefits of baobab. I couldn’t believe such a nutritious fruit was still relatively unknown outside of Africa. But what is particularly powerful for me is the opportunity to generate income for rural African households by building awareness of baobab and other under-utilised ingredients. The opportunity for us to change lives through positive action is one of the main reasons I joined the team. I have always been connected to health and wellness throughout my career and I’m thrilled to now spread the baobab and moringa love!
