Jan Camp was always looking for projects that stimulate employment. He started the moringa project at the end of 2012. He started with a number of moringa trees in his garden. The moringa trees were then planted and cared for in large numbers on small farms. Jan provided information to interested farmers and made seeds available. Leaves could soon be harvested and that created a lot of employment.

Growing moringa trees

Work areas were set up where the leaves were washed and where they could dry. The dried leaves were grinded into powder or packaged as tea. Jan did his utmost to establish contacts to sell the products. He succeeded and soon we disconnected this project from our organization. It could continue on its own. Jan then devoted himself to creating variety in the products. There are now several types of moringa tea, tablets and powder, and oil and soap are manufactured. Good sales opportunities have been found in China. In the Netherlands we sell moringa products via the webshop and in our shop.


About the moringa tree

Moringa Oleifera (also called the miracle tree or magic tree), has already been successfully grown in Africa and is extremely rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. The leaves are a natural organic source for the necessary vitamins, minerals and energy in our body and an indispensable supplement for people who eat one-sided food.

Dry moringa leaves contain:

– Ten times more vitamin A than carrots.
– 1/2 times more vitamin C than oranges.
– Seventeen times more calcium than milk.
– Fifteen times more potassium than bananas.
– 5 times more iron than spinach.
– Nine times the protein value of yogurt.
