A little bit about the story of Afya…
Afya means ‘health’ in Kiswahili, the language of Kenya. Afya is a family that includes everybody from the harvesters that collect our pods from the great Baobab tree, to the pickers and packers in our UK warehouse. The Afya family works together with the common goal of promoting healthy minds, body’s and spirit.
We believe Baobab is the superfood of superfoods! Afya Baobab Superfruit Powder is not only a super healthy product, it also has the potential to bring incomes to remote areas where unemployment is an everyday reality, generate financial support through our pledge to the Kenya Society for the Protection of Animals and ensure the Great Baobab tree remains a prominent figure in the African landscape for generations to come.
At the head of the Afya family is Poppy in Kenya and Declan in the UK. Poppy works around the clock supporting everybody from our harvesters, processors and delivery drivers, to visiting KSPCA regularly to check up on the staff and animals usually over a quick cup of chi masala . Declan is a nutritionist and puts his knowledge to use within Afya by providing nutritional advice. writing informative blog posts and constantly learning new things about Kenya’s incredible superfoods.
