SeKaf Ghana Ltd. was founded in 2003 in Accra.
In 2004, SeKaf had already become innovative leader in the shea industry in Ghana.
In 2006, SeKaf moved the business from Accra to Tamale and settled right under the shea trees from where it operates until today.
In 2006, SeKaf was touched by the poor economic conditions of the people in Savana area where it operated, so it decided to turn the company into a social enterprise to help the woman with a sustainable livelihood.
In 2008, it established the SeKaf Shea Butter Village (SBV), the first of its kind in Africa with 48 women. By 2011, the number of women in the Shea Butter Villages has increased to about 3,215 from about 22 communities.
Thanks to the support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) the number of women at the shea butter villages, who are involved in various stages of processing, currently is almost 6000 from about 38 communities in five Districts in Northern Ghana.
In 2009, SeKaf moved from exporting only raw shea butter and shea oil to producing TAMA cosmetics by itself using their organically certified shea butter, thereby adding value and creating more value to the rural women.
