Product Description Started by a Peace Corps volunteer, Mavuno Harvest believes in the potential of small-scale African farmers and partners directly with them to avoid waste and sell their full harvest. Organic fruits with absolutely nothing added, these natural snacks help you feel full, refreshed, and happy. From the Manufacturer Delicious organic snacks Our delicious and healthy dried fruits are grown organically without the use of GMO’s, chemical pesticides or fertilizers. These fruits are pure and packed with vitamins and essential nutrients, with no added sugar or preservatives. Ethically sourced and naturally delicious, just as nature intended. Fair trade, ethically sourced Mavuno Harvest was started by a Peace Corps volunteer who saw that African farmers were unable to sell their full harvests due to limited access to markets. The process of drying fruit generates more jobs in local communities and enables farmers to sell their entire harvest. Fair trade practices Mavuno Harvest opens up new markets and pays farmers a Fair Trade premium, which is used to build schools, dig water wells and purchase farming equipment like wheelbarrows.
