How are we changing Mexico?

Kukua is a social enterprise that seeks to improve diet, reforest, and provide extra income for marginalized communities in Mexico with the Moringa tree – famous for its high nutritional value.

Moringa originated in India, and due to the high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals it contains, its leaves have been used to combat malnutrition internationally by organizations such as the U.N. and the F.A.O. 

At Kukua we are positive that incorporating Moringa in daily nutrition can help prevent the bigger health issues faced in Mexico, such as obesity, diabetes, and both mental and physical under-development. 

By consuming Kukua products you are improving your health and wellbeing, and also contributing to:

●      Training women in marginalized communities on planting, growing, and consumption techniques for Moringa. 

●      Economical growth for these communities through sales and distribution of the leaf.

●      Reforestation of these communities through constant planting and growing of new trees.

Our products

●      Kukua Powder: cooking complement that increases the nutritional value of all your food.

●      Kukua capsules: for easy on-the-go consumption, take 2 at every meal.

●      Moringa cookies: delicious, nutritious, and healthy! Perfect for dessert or a quick snack.

●      Moringa tree: help create a greener Mexico by planting your own.

In buying our products you are benefitting Kukua’s humanitarian endeavors.

How will we use the money? 

Accelerating the growth of our company in the Instituto Irrazonable. This will help us create more greenhouses, so we can reach many more communities. We currently have 3 greenhouses benefitting different communities in Morelos.

The Team: 

We are a group of 5 women who share a passion for nutrition, trees, community development, and, above all: MORINGA! Each of us has discovered something incredible about this tree:

  • Isabel worked with it in Kenya, where she witnessed the impact that it has on communities in terms of economic growth, job creation, and overal health.
  • Inés has been a part of 2 start-ups and saw in Kukua the opportunity to generate a social and sustainable impact wolrdwide.
  • Jana is a food engineer and has found a way to design Kukua’s products in a way that maximizes their nutritional properties
  • Fernanda  is a passionate nutritionist who takes care of transmitting the important properties of Moringa to our communities as well as our clients, and
  • Andrea is a chef and health coach who has developed delicious and healthy recipes with all of Kukua’s products.
