For the last two weeks I have been buried in tons of paperwork to ensure that Atacora can be the number one bulk supplier in the US for Baobab Superfruit Powder, Baobab Body Oil, African Neem Oil, Dried Moringa Leaf Powder, Fonio, Shea Butter, Red Palm Oil and African Honey. It is not an easy task by any means, but it is important to me that we have a continual supply and can have a quick turn around with all orders.My mind is focused on Africa, ensuring proper production and good working conditions. I spend nearly half the year there working directly with rural producers and women’s cooperatives to not only furnish the finest and most unique products, but to create a community of ethical actors with an ever-growing voice. When I am in the States, I spend much of my time coordinating the Atacora team in Benin so that we are all working toward the same goals.
It is nice how Atacora has developed. I ensure pure, top quality products at a reasonable price and real sustainability while Melissa takes care of our wonderful customers. Sometimes I cannot help but laugh at overhearing some of her conversations in the office. It always seems like she is on the phone with one of her good friends laughing and having a good time. From the producers in Benin, all the way to our clients, we have become a solid family!
Our customers are thrilled and feel like they are a part of the Atacora Community, a community that is ever-growing in both Africa and the US. I never thought that Atacora would become what it is today and that our Fair Partnership umbrella would keep expanding, but it is, and I am so grateful!
We work very hard to make sure that our products and our relationships are the best of the best. Baobab is our flagship product, but we are quickly expanding our product portfolio and to meet our customers interests and needs. We are your direct source, offering bulk African wellness products shipped directly from the US. Join our Family!
