The Coopérative des Producteurs d’Arachide, de beurre de Karité et de miel (COPRAKAM) has obtained the certification of its shea butter. After the certification stage, COPRAKAM exported 23 tonnes of shea to France.
This result is achieved through the Rio Tinto Foundation’s support to this organization in the process of buying, processing and marketing shea butter and honey.
As part of this project the Rio Tinto Foundation has also made available packaging and several processing equipment.
The NGO has a shop in Dabola where its Shea products are available. These are Karicor, baby kari, kari honey, karin, creams and soaps. COPRAKAM has received support of over 380,000,000 GNF from the Rio Tinto Foundation.
