Restoring nature

FOGA invest in a green future by planting new acacia trees.


The acacia senegal trees grow best in a hot and dry area on Sahara sand. With their roots they fertilize the ground so other vegetation can grow.

The big trees keep sand on its place to prevent sandstorms. In addition to a positive effect by converting CO2 to oxygen, areas with these trees also attract more rain.

FOGA ORGANIC GUM ACACIA PRODUCTS

FOGA is producing a range of Organic Gum Acacia (hashab) products like Instant Powder and spray dried arabic gum.

Harvest

To harvest the gum, the bark of the Acacia trees is cut (“tapping”), the resin comes out as little tears or drops. The exudate dries up at the air and is then manually harvested. There are 2 tappings per season in December and March.

Dried resin

After the harvest, the Gum Acacia tears are still soft and have to dry under the sun before the sorting, packing, storage, transport and export.

Granulating / milling: The raw Gum Acacia pieces are processed into different forms like spray dry, instant powder. 

Pulverizing: The Gum Acacia is dissolved in water, purified (by sieving and centrifugation), pasteurized, and finally transformed into standardized powders through our company-own drying process.
