Kwami Williams born and raised in Ghana immigrated to the US as a young boy. He graduated from graduated from MIT with a degree in aerospace engineering and starting a career at NASA. Emily Cunningham was studying development economics at Harvard, frustrated by the disconnect between the information in her textbooks and realities in the developing world.
Kwami returned to Ghana in January of 2013 and it was there the pair themselves working in rural Ghana by different paths. They were introduced to the moringa tree and NGO’s encouraged farmers to cultivate moringa for the nutritional benefits. However, the farmers didn’t have a way earning a living cultivating moringa utilising the entire benefits. So Kwami and Emily took the unused part of the tree - the seeds- back to their labs at MIT and figured out how to cold-press the moringa seeds into a nourishing oil that outperforms argan, jojoba, and shea.
Together, we set about building True Moringa with the mission of doing wellness differently. We believe that being healthy should be simple, affordable, and accessible to all.
