An exotic commodity that has the power to drive development in the African nations that produce it. Derived from hardened acacia tree sap, harvested in the Sahel region of Africa, gum arabic is used primarily by the food industry.
The transformation of gum arabic production into more income-generating activities can not only promote economic development through higher incomes, but also to secure rural livelihoods, empower vulnerable groups, including women, and promote synergies with natural resource management and climate change mitigation.
It is used as a stabilizer, a binder, an emulsifier or a viscosity-increasing agent, not only in confectionery, soft drinks, wine, liquor, and dietary fibre, but also for non-food products such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, printing, ceramics, photosensitive chemicals, textiles, paper, ink, paints and adhesives.
The Gum Arabic sector has potential to generate foreign exchange, promote sustainable agriculture and forestry, ensure food security and combat desertification and climate change.
We have increased our procurement and expanded our facilities at a rapid pace exporting thousands of tons of gum in a span of 2 years, our growth has allowed us to supply to large players in the market and are looking to widen our client base by promising a sustained supply of gum round the year.
