Ojoba Collective is a social enterprise co-founded by Johan and Tracy Wulfers in 2003. Originally based in the United States, Ojoba Collective relocated to Finland in 2018.
Our goal is to use the principles of fair trade as a vehicle for creating healthy, empowered, and environmentally sustainable rural communities. For the last 15 years, we have worked directly with producer groups in West Africa.
We ethically source natural plant oils, such as baobab oil and shea butter for the cosmetics industry, and also coordinate community-based capacity building projects in areas of literacy, health, alternative farming techniques, and building climate change resiliency. We also do consulting work for ethical companies interested in creating successful capacity building projects in their supply chain.
