True Moringa was inspired by the African tree, Moringa. Founders Kwami Williams and Emily Cunningham were introduced to what was known as the "miracle tree" during a trip to northern Ghana, in 2011. Putting their engineering and business acumen to work, Williams went back to Cambridge to devise a proprietary extraction system that could be brought closer to the farmers, adding value and jobs on the ground. Soon, MoringaConnect was born. Today, MoringaConnect works with over 300 smallholder farms throughout the country to provide a stable source of income and nutrition.
