www.kenyastar.com - Thursday 8th February, 2018
Walmart debuted their newest partnership on Saturday, February 3, 2018 with one of the leading organic beauty, health and food African product lines sold in the U.S, Juka's Organic Co., founded by former Wilhelmina model, actress, now business mogul, Juka Ceesay.
Ceesay, with the inspiration from her mother and women from her home country, Gambia, Africa, initially started her own gourmet and specialty food store in Los Angeles, which shortly grew into a national brand popular for their products.
Juka's Organic offers sustainable, all natural, organic foods and beauty products, ethically benefitting and harvested by groups of women farmers from villages of Africa.
Juka's Organic Co., line includes Organic Red Palm Oil, Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Red Palm Gourmet Sauce, Baobab Fruit Powder, Shea butter, Organic Red Palm Oil Soaps, Red Palm Oil Capsules and many more, which are now available on Walmart.com.
The company is best known for their unrefined Red Palm Oil due to their sustainable practices that preserve the wildlife in Africa.
The Walmart Super Center in Porter Ranch now carries Juka's Organic Red Palm Oil, Cold Pressed Coconut Oil and Red Palm Gourmet Sauce.
“It is very crucial for consumers to be conscious of where they source their Red Palm Oil. Red Palm is an indigenous fruit tree to Africa, therefore, every 3-4 months the fruits are safely and ethically harvested from the palm trees that have naturally been there for centuries," said Juka Ceesay.
"Each generation of women ethically produce their palm fruit oil without endangering wildlife. Red palm fruit is the main source of income for these women in the villages of Africa & their families."
"I am grateful to be the bridge between the markets and to offer these natural products that originate from Africa to help alleviate many existing health concerns in the US, such as high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, and more," Ceesay added. "We are indeed honored to be part of such an incredible social and global enterprise.”
Red palm oil has been used as a healing ancient cooking oil by millions of people in Africa for many years. As an innovative business mogul, Juka Ceesay created a variety of versions to offer the oil to her customers.
Unrefined Red Palm Oil, different from the ordinary “palm oil,” contains high levels of vitamin E & A. It also has ample amounts of antioxidant and other potent benefits to the skin, hair and overall health.
Juka’s Organic Co., now makes this healthy oil accessible to mainstream markets along with other natural products that are indigenous to Africa.
