2023 Quality Assurance Manager

About us

MoringaConnect (DBA True Moringa) is an MIT-Harvard spinout on a mission to use underutilized superfoods to improve the lives of rural farmers and to meet the wellness needs of underserved customers. We’re starting with moringa - a superfood tree more nutritious than kale and moisturizing than argan. We use the moringa tree's seed oil to create skincare products (face, lip, & body care) and its leaf powder to create wellness products (supplements, beverages, & snacks). Our branded products are sold in-person, online, and in retail in Ghana (Melcom, Farmer’s Market, Relish, MIG Mart) and in the USA (Whole Foods, Costco, Pharmaca, Amazon). We also serve as a private label and bulk ingredient supplier for fast growing brands using moringa in Africa, North America, Europe, and Asia. Since 2014, we have served 5,000 women and family farmers, and planted 3 million moringa trees in Ghana. We are hiring top talent to accelerate our growth and impact.
