Cultivating sesame seeds is incredibly labour intensive but the 275 farmers in the remote region of Achuapa, Nicaragua think it’s worthwhile. The expert sesame farmers plant the sesame by hand, dry it in the sun, then thrash and sieve the seeds.
DID YOU KNOW? We buy our Community Trade sesame oil from the Juan Francisco Paz Silva Co-operative. Our trade helps the 275 members receive a sustainable income.
