  • Project Story

Supa Nutri / RSQ specialize currently in the growing, harvesting, processing, warehousing, bulk wholesale and online retail distribution of Moringa Superfood Vegetable Powder and related products.

RSQ focuses on the harvesting and distribution to warehouse and Supa Nutri focuses on marketing and distribution logistics to end-user in South Africa as well as export to Canada.

Together Supa Nutri & RSQ manage the value chain from soil-to-warehouse-to-end-user whilst ensuring fair-value exchange for all involved starting with Rural African Woman harvesters based in five rural African communities and culminating in highly nutritious valuable life-enhancing beneficial food products.

The major challenge with readily available, abundantly and wildly growing African Superfoods is how to provide 1st world Hygienic sterile processing standards in very remote rural African villagers and the means to collect and then distribute the produce to the buyer via secure transport without theft further down the supply chain.

Theft of produce during transport (using independent contractors) is a constant headache as is bacterial contamination because of rudimentary rural conditions although we are grateful to have discovered ionic anti-bacterial water sterilisation which solved many headaches.

The Manufacture and Installation of Superfood Mobile Hygienic Automated Processing Units (M.A.P.’s) and the provision of dedicated theft-proof cargo trucks for collection and distribution is the solution.

The proposed automated systems as well as transport vehicles will make the moringa production and delivery practically hassle free.

This will ensure that rural African woman harvesters (and their dependents) from 5 communities who have never had access to economic empowerment NOW have direct access to 1st world markets by providing 1st world quality valuable superfood products in an eco-sustainable manner.

What is Moringa Superfood Vegetable Powder?

A naturally dehydrated powder obtained only from the finely ground leaves of naturally occurring and wild harvested Moringa Oleifera trees. No pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used. No additional process is applied and no preservatives or additives are added. 100% natural.

Moringa Powder is made from naturally-dried moringa leaves. It has a delicious spinachy green flavour and is:

  • 25% plant protein including all 9 essential amino acids 
  • 24% fibre 
  • A rich source of iron, vitamin K & E
  • A source of vitamin A & calcium 
  • High in antioxidants

As Moringa Powder is a natural source of these nutrients, it is highly bioavailable, so our bodies can absorb the benefits more easily than by taking synthetic supplements. 

 

Projects displayed here are real campaigns whose founders have agreed to be showcased.

Our intention is to generate initial interest and gather early feedback.

Acorn’s crowdfunding platform is tentatively scheduled to go live by end-2018, after which fundraising will begin.
