South Orange, NJ (PRWEB) June 16, 2013
It's Moringa, the highly publicized national distributor for the amazing moringa leaf line of teas and supplements, is pleased to announce their landslide crowdfunding campaign success story. Founded by Jude Ken-Kwofie in 2009, It's Moringa has garnered nationwide popularity as the #1 source of premium, sustainable fair-trade sourced moringa leaf to the American public. With spots on network television programs like Dr. Oz, It's Moringa uses their corporate popularity not only to increase sales, but to increase awareness about pressing global issues like world hunger and farmer exploitation in Africa.
In April 3, 2013 It's Moringa launched their crowdfunding campaign with a goal to achieve USDA Organic and Fairtrade accreditation. This would enable to company to certify their products with globally recognized standards of organic farming, social responsiveness and responsibility. The campaign came to a successful culmination on May 18th, 2013, with the contributions of just people, thus enabling the company to finalize their USDA Organic and Fairtrade certification from the Institute of Marketecology (IMO).
Jude is quoted as saying, "This crownfunding campaign has given us more than just the funds to acquire IMO certification, but it has also given us the opportunity to truly realize one of our core goals – to better global health, the livelihoods of children and our moringa growers, and better consumer confidence in Ghanaian grown foods. Global hunger is a real and very preventable problem. No human being should ever suffer from malnutrition. Additionally, the exploitation of farmers, specifically moringa farmers has gone on for too long. We are now able to heighten awareness of both problems, while contributing fiscally and energetically to their solutions. We couldn't be more excited, or more humbled."
