Dada in Swahili means sister and is a term that is used for addressing an elder sister or another woman respectfully. Dada Zanzibar is a project by set up as a socially responsible business network with women in the rural north of Unguja Island. Dada is creating job opportunities by providing the women with training in food processing suchas drying fruit and spices, cooking jams, condiments and snacks and baking breads and pastries as well as soaps and marketing their products locally and nationally.

Artisan production and product availability


Dada is a brand that stands for quality, integrity and originality of food stuff made in Zanzibar. Our range of handmade jams and mustards, cereals, snacks, pastries, sweets as well as the dried fruits and roll‐ups have been made with great care and attention to detail. Generally our products are made in small quantities to guarantee their quality and freshness. Furthermore, the majority of our raw materials – mainly fruit and vegetables – are seasonal and cannot be available all the time. Please inquire about making an order if you are wishing to purchase larger quantities.

Environment and renewable energies

As far as possible we practise good environmental policies across all our business activities contributing to less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Whenever weather conditions permit, solar cookers and solar ovens are used to cook and fry. Solar dryers are used to dry fruit and spices. During times of less favourite weather we prepare our products on specially-made firewood saving stoves using wood from local plantations. We purchase our ingredients from local quality wholesalers and fruit and vegetables are sourced from small scale farmers in the area. Whenever possible we use organically farmed produce.
