Our story began 2008 with our founder’s vision to end African poverty by enabling African industry to thrive and create decent work for local communities. With the support of two friends and a firm belief that capturing the value of natural resources locally was the key to prosperity, Proudly Made in Africa was created and within a year, we had producer projects running in Kenya and Ethiopia. Since then, we have supported over 700 businesses and entrepreneurs across 15 countries on the continent of Africa and connected ethically minded buyers with responsibly sourced African products. Here in Ireland, we've promoted the excellence of African industry to almost 20,000 business students through our education programmes.
