Description

Kuli Kuli Business Development Fellowship

Kuli Kuli is a rapidly growing startup at the intersection of consumer packaged goods (CPG) and social good. We are creating an international market for Moringa oleifera to improve the livelihoods and health of women in the developing world. We sell healthy products made with moringa sustainably sourced from women-run cooperatives in Ghana and Haiti. Our products are carried in hundreds of grocery stores and sold online at kulikulifoods.com. Kuli Kuli’s mission is to create a world where everyone has access to nutritious sources of food and malnutrition only exists in history books. We’ve been featured on MSNBC, NBC and in Fast Company for our unique products and compelling social mission.

Kuli Kuli is looking for a Business Development Fellow with a passion for sales and social change to help us grow our company and cause. Through strategic work with our network of Brand Ambassadors, sales reps and distributors, you’ll help us scale up our business and deepen our impact.
