Marula Atchar: Local Fruit in New Product

Research has revealed that the skin of the Marula fruit, indigenous to Africa, is rich in essential nutrients. We have developed a Marula Atchar product to compete with existing products based on the native fruit adding a new tart and distinctive flavour to this South African favourite. This innovative idea adding peels to this food product is of economic value, as it will increase food security and boost local job creation.
