We promote consumer vegetable oils and essential oils that are rarely or irregularly found in markets outside Togo. We are promoting oils deriving from tropical plants that contain high-nutritional elements, such as ocimum, moringa, cinnamon, citronella, coconut natural oil etc.
An appeal to add value
CDH needs funds to improve our project management and to make production more efficient. Improving management involves educating farmers in permaculture, regenerative agriculture and growing moringa, changing perceptions, and creating employment. Making production more efficient requires additional funds for various machines, including for extraction and distillation of moringa oil, to pound moringa dry leaves into powder, and to crush Moringa fresh leaves, and to provide transport for harvested moringa.
