Who is ME ?

The botanist of wellness.

Jeanne Ngo Yockbag, co-founder of MEJeanne Ngo Yockbag, co-founder of ME

Founded in 2012, on the majestic Kenyan South Coast along the Indian Ocean,
ME embraces the wonderful nature that surrounds it. Indeed, in its entire range of wholesome organic products, it is the legendary Moringa with its carefully selected leaves which offers the one of the highest nutritional values in the world.

The co-founder of ME, Jeanne Ngo Yockbag, is a Cameroonian lady who grew up in West Africa and was living in Europe for a long time before settling in Kenya.

Everything started years ago, after several trips to Asia. In China, Jeanne was initiated to the art of meditation, as a way to gain inner peace. In India she had received lessons from Masters in Ayurveda. That’s how she became a tea connoisseur and first heard about the miraculous benefits of Moringa, the
“Tree of Life”.

This initiatory experience made her an enlightened tea lover and led her to adopt a holistic lifestyle - based on the idea that well-being depends on the harmony between the three dimensions of Being: body, mind and soul.

As Jeanne was visiting Kenya with her husband, Manfred Schmitt, they both fell in love with the country, with its beautiful landscapes and wildlife. During their stay,
a friend of the couple, a doctor in herbal medicine, invited them to her farm. And there it was again: Moringa, the superfood of superfoods!

This time, the plant holds all the attention of Jeanne, subjugated by the amazing properties she discovered: she said "I became aware of this wonderful gift of nature called Moringa. Imagine a plant which can save the lives of millions of people around the world." She had only one desire: to make this miracle accessible to everyone.

Now, with the support of her husband, a successful businessman, Jeanne‘s ambitions and dream: to create a global brand made in Africa, with main principles of honesty, ethical and sustainability, providing, through purest grade Moringa products, easy and convenient health solutions for everybody.

ME values

Love Kenya

Nature preservation

ME works in harmony with nature and we are committed to support nature through active reforestation and the re-population of our region with trees and indigenous animals which had diminished in large numbers. Our farm is 100% organic, Rainforest Alliance certified and our production facility is certified ISO 22000. As a result, we are also certified with “Excellence” by Bureau Veritas.

High Quality standards

Quality is priority

At ME, quality comes first. Our aim is to deliver our products to the market in a safe, attractive, innovative, and ecologically friendly way. To maintain our top-quality standards, we have invested heavily in equipment and building for lab testing and research & development.

Our production facility guarantees processing under high hygiene standards with controlled drying process below 38°C. That’s how we provide the highest quality of organic Moringa with all nutrients and antioxidants preserved, in its purest and most convenient forms while fully respecting nature.

Doing good

Social responsibility

ME actively contributes to the development of the local community. Since 2014, ME Moringa for Life EPZ Ltd has employed over 400 people on the farm on daily basis, from rural community Msambweni, a region with over 80% unemployment. Most of our people live on less than $2 per day. ME plays an instrumental role in lifting each of them and their families from below the poverty line. Creating jobs is the only way to fight poverty and ensure a stable income for the local population. That is real and measurable impact.

Currently, 35 million people are fleeing from poverty and risking their lives to get to Europe and western countries, in search of a better life. We must fight hunger where it develops to end this human tragedy. That’s why ME is planning to create 1,000 jobs locally here in Kenya by 2020!

Education and sharing

As Moringa is a gift of nature, we believe it must be accessible for all. A universal gift for healthy and disabled, for rich and underprivileged, young and elderly people.

That’s why we teach members of our local communities, from youngsters to adults, about Moringa. We provide them with seedlings, and actively support them in creating their own sustainable nutritional source and income through entrepreneurship.

Besides, we actively support the most vulnerable, the hungry and the impoverished. Especially the young orphans, because children are the future.
