KAITE: Zimbabwe's bridge to the world
Producing and certifiying organic essential oils, herbs & spices
Since 2007, KAITE trains small-scale farmers to produce, process and certify organic essential oils, herbs and spices. It is the first local enterprise in Zimbabwe to work with small-scale women farmers to produce these products for export. The 30 employees at KAITE connect the 500 cooperating partner farmers to local and international fair trade markets in order to target key markets in Europe and the US in the flavouring, fragrance, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Each KAITE partner farmer increases its family’s income by 150% while fulfilling international customers’ demands for organic products and derivatives.
