Baobab Processing

Baobab Processing

Started about three years ago by a Peace Corps volunteer, Atacora Essential processes baobab fruit into powder and oil sold nationally and internationally. Visit their website to buy one of the products: The picture above shows three of the company’s products: (from the left) sesame oil, baobab powder, baobab oil. In the picture below, the current volunteer working with Atacora Essential, Steve Smith, stands with the machine used to press the sesame and baobab oil.
