In 2016, I almost died from iron deficiency anaemia, but turkey berries called abeduru in my community helped save me. Globally, 1.62 billion people anaemic (WHO). About 570 million in Africa and nearly 10 million from Ghana. Every year, about 300,000 pregnant women die to iron deficiency and other factors. Even though turkey berries has nutritious benefits, and used in some homes in my community, it’s short shelf-life makes it not readily accessible coupled with longer traditional preparations times. We have trained smallholder farmers to grow the fruits and we are saving lives by providing shelf stable nutritious blends of turkey berries in teas, juices and powders for healthy living and also promotes blood health and a strong immune system. Our products are organic without side effects like constipation. In this COVID-19 era, our products are the number one choice for many families in Ghana. Our innovation is unique to the Ghanaian community and the West African region.
