For any jam lover, this exotic and rich mango flavour is definitely one to try. This delicious jam has been made by Meru Herbs, using 100% natural, hand-selected fruits, ripened under the balmy African sun.
Meru Herbs is a female-led organisation in rural Kenya and is dedicated to fair trade principles, with a clear mission to empower women, alleviate poverty and improve standards of living. This forward-thinking organisation gives smallholder farmers the opportunity to sell their produce and improve their income by supplying directly to Meru Herbs. Up to 100 local women are employed to prepare fruits and herbs, and make the most amazing, all-natural sauces and jams.
Not only is this jam good for smallholder farmers, but it’s good for you, too. Mango is an excellent source of vitamin A, as well as containing high amounts of pectin, a soluble dietary fibre that efficiently contributes to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. The digestive enzymes in mangoes helps to promote natural digestion, too! So, whether it’s a gift for a loved one or to top up your own store cupboard, this jam is certain to become a fair trade household favourite.
