Founded by Sandrine  Vasselin, MISAO is a Belgian start-up with African roots  specializing in the search and production of high quality spices and dry agri-food products, originating from exceptional terroirs in Central Africa.

Since 2015, the MISAO team has been working to highlight some of the quality agri-food products offered by the Kivu region.  Wild Kivu Pepper, an exceptional pepper with very subtle aromas, picked and selected in a traditional way, and dried using the unique method developed by Misao which combines ancestral tradition, respect for the environment and the product.
