Baobab Foods LLC sources from several different areas within the southern African region. Working on a density of three baobab trees per hectare, Non-profit organization PhytoTrade Africa (phytotrade.com) estimates the potential sustainable yield for the region to be 108,000 tons. This means that southern Africa alone has the resources to more than cover even the most optimistic global 10-year projections for Baobab multiple times over. In addition we are committed to the protection of the Baobab tree populations through ensuring that the harvesting of our Baobab leaves the trees undamaged. For many years southern African harvesters have set the standard for best practice in Baobab Fruit harvest techniques and fruit powder production in Africa.
