We care about where our tiger nuts come from. We care a lot about quality, traceability and sustainability, and we NEVER buy tiger nuts on the open market. We only buy our African tiger nuts from one selected EU supplier who owns the farms where our tiger nuts are grown.
This means they control the quality of Tiger Nuts from soil to us, and we control it from them to you.
A lot of thought went in to ethically sourcing our tiger nuts, and eventually, we opted to source them from Burkina Faso.
Burkina Faso has one of the highest levels of absolute poverty in the world, and its economy depends primarily on aid and agriculture.
Whilst these problems are obviously too big for us to fix ourselves, sourcing our tiger nuts from Burkina Faso is our way of trying to help. Our supplier will be fair trade certified within the next few months; this means you can be confident that each purchase of our African Tiger Nuts will directly contribute to lifting workers out of poverty by ensuring they receive a fair wage for their work.
