It’s time I introduce myself. I’m Jeff Ericson, the founder of Moringatein. Before I get into how I discovered moringa and why I started Moringatein to combat global malnutrition, let me share my background in business.
I founded Camano Island Coffee Roasters in 2000 with the simple philosophy that a business can change the world for good. Our vision was to combine our passion for ethical coffee with generational change in coffee growing regions. You can read more about the success we’ve had on the Camano Island Coffee website.
While visiting coffee farmers in South America, I was introduced to moringa by a Peace Corps professional. He showed me the numerous uses of the tree, including how the leaves are packed with vitamins, protein, and fiber millions of people are lacking.
Having seen the devastation of malnutrition around the world, combined with my experience in social business and new knowledge of the nutritious moringa, I knew I was on to something big!
Let’s continue the conversation with the amazing health and environmental benefits of moringa listed here.
