Shea butter

Shea trees grow naturally in the wild bush of West Africa.

AGRIFASO works together with women’s groups in 10 villages in the southwest Burkina Faso who collect shea nuts from wild shea trees.

AGRIFASO has defined collecting areas of natural forest in which the women collect the shea nuts. No cultivation is permitted in the natural forests chosen for collecting areas.

AGRIFASO buys the shea kernels directly from the women in their villages.

AGRIFASO produces shea butter from the shea kernels in the AGRIFASO factory located in the industrial zone of Bobo-Dioulasso.

AGRIFASO is one of the main producers and suppliers of shea butter in Burkina Faso for the international food and cosmetic market.
