The final BAOQUALITY workshop took place from the 20th to the 22nd of September in Lilongwe, Malawi. After a long period of working together remotely and only meeting each other digitally because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were delighted that we could meet each other in person again. During the 2.5 days workshop, the MSc and PhD students involved in the project from the different partner countries (Kenya, Sudan, Malawi, and Germany) had the chance to present their research findings to the project consortium and to experts from the broader baobab sector and to discuss practical implications of their work. The workshop participants were also able to visit a local producer of baobab juice and associated project partner, Naturals Limited, to learn and taste about baobab in practice.
During the field trip to Naturals Limited, BAOQUALITY consultant Gus Le Breton, also known as the African Plant Hunter on Youtube, prepared a short video about the production of Baobab juice. Check it out here:
