About Caïo

Since 2015 we are on a mission to change the lives of rural Ugandan women and bring Nilotica shea butter to the world.

We do this by doing good business. One Nilotica shea nut at a time. Get inside Caïo and learn more about us and why and how we do what we do.


Caïo is an impact business. That means that we are a business. Not a charity, not a project. We plan to be around for decades to come. And that can only be guaranteed by a solid business case. The impact part means that we measure success in both terms of profit and impact. We can’t make an impact without a profit and we can’t make a sustainable profit without making an impact as well.

To us that is simply good business and we hope that in years to come that will become normal. Everyone should expect good business from every business.

In order to achieve that we also hold our selves to high standards in every day decision making and how we work together with our staff, our suppliers, customers and other stakeholders.
