Overview

The potential of agro-processing in Lesotho, especially using sorghum, pumpkin and pumpkin seeds to produce sorghum muesli and sorghum baked products is not fully exploited. Super-foods, trading as Bohlokoa is one of the first movers in an emerging market and therefore encourages participation of the smallholder farming entrepreneurs in agro-processing activities. This move, therefore, creates the potential for a sustainable business opportunity. Bohlokoa utilizes and process sorghum to manufacture and market healthy, nutritious and convenient products (Sorghum muesli, sorghum nutty snack, sorghum instant porridge and sorghum baked products) for the health-conscious, people on-the-go and cultural heritage within and outside Lesotho.  Superfoods concept has been developed in the trenches of using traditional, climate-smart crop (sorghum) and indigenous fruits in Lesotho, to produce nutritious products.
