EcoProducts at Work – a short film excerpt by Agence France-Presse

Agence France-Presse (AFP) is an international news agency with headquarters in Paris and is the world’s oldest news agency having been founded in 1835.  It’s the third largest news agency in the modern world after the Associated Press (AP) and Reuters and they recently came out to the Limpopo to film EcoProducts at work.

“The fruit of the mighty African baobab tree is gaining popularity around the world thanks to its nutritional properties, and producers in South Africa are working hard to meet demand. The seeds and chalky powder inside the pods have become a global health craze celebrated for their vitamin-packed properties and now used in everything from flavoured soda, ice cream and chocolate to gin and cosmetics.”

Watch the EcoProducts team at work harvesting and processing baobab fruit pods.
