Everything needs an ecosystem to prosper and flourish. The Moringa industry does, too. To achieve this supportive environment, we call on all actors to unify and exchange ideas for the sustainable development of the Moringa industry.

Currently, the developing Moringa sector encounters these critical needs:

  • Developing and producing high-quality cultivars necessary to launch a large industry.

  • A central online data base to support research, education and communication.

  • An exchange platform to educate on certifications, best agricultural practices and best handling practices.

  • Viable solutions in countries where legal ownership of land slows down investment.

  • How to bring new investors to the field?

  • Strategies for Moringa to reach new markets which bank on more than its superfood status.

  • Creating supportive institutional, legal and political frameworks at the local, national and international level.

This will be an on-going discussion.

Some industries such as bamboo and rattan have been able to organize themselves and communicate very well on their contribution to sustainable development. Will the Moringa industry live up to its potential, social and environmental responsibilities? Will the Moringa industry meet today’s challenges and possibilities?

Food for thought :

  • Malnutrition is most present in the areas of Moringa production [SEE MAP]How to ensure that Moringa is accessible to all inhabitants in these areas?

  • A strong industry is based on happy producers. How to support the interests of Moringa grassroots stakeholders?

  • The transformation industry holds the most added value. How to promote transformation in the countries of production?

  • Is the Moringa industry ready to hold its place in the global sustainable development world?


We look forward to continuing this conversation throughout the year and in person during the 2nd International Symposium on Moringa in Pretoria, South Africa 10th to 13th of November 2019.
