Kuli Kuli is the world’s leading moringa brand with the highest quality moringa on the market. Moringa is a leafy green more nutritious than kale that provides powerful anti-inflammatory benefits rivaling those of turmeric.
Their Moringa Superfood Bars, Pure Organic Moringa Powder, Moringa Green Tea Wellness Shots, and Organic Moringa Green Smoothie Mixes are made in the US with moringa sourced directly from women’s cooperatives and small family farmers around the world. By importing a portion of the moringa to the US for their products, they’ve created an international market for moringa and a sustainable livelihood for their farmers.
