The Savannah Fruits Company works with local, women-led cooperatives in West Africa to source handcrafted ingredients.
We purchase organic and Fair for Life certified shea butter and virgin coconut oil for our products.
In addition to organic and fair trade premiums, we pay an extra premium to the women who hand make our shea butter. This represents an 89% increase in revenue for the women in the cooperatives.
Long Term Investment
We are working together to fund infrastructure and technology to empower women to improve their livelihoods, while positively impacting the environment.

We provide a year-round income for women, beyond the seasonal shea nut collection. This creates more jobs and keeps wealth in the community.
Long term funding supports women’s cooperatives to create lasting generational wealth and positive community outcomes.
Organic ingredients protect the environment and workers’ health as they avoid contact with chemicals while farming and processing shea butter.
