About Nagaad


Our focus is on fostering communities and safeguarding the environment

Nagaad Resins and Gums (Nagaad Gums) started in the late 1940s as a family business in rural Somalia. Focused on sustainable resin and gum harvesting, it empowered communities, conserved the environment, and provided a stable income source. The business thrived until the late 1980s, with harvesting operations nationwide.

Our History

Nagaad Gums, originating in the 1940s as a family business in Somalia, harvested resins sustainably. Hindered by civil war in the 1990s, it rebooted in 2015 as a community-centric Social Enterprise. Modern facilities, an emphasis on conservation, and partnerships make it a beacon of resilience and sustainable growth.

Our Business Background

Nagaad Resins and Gums, named after the family trait of “resilience,” sources natural resins from plants thriving in harsh terrains. Historically, these resins, important for traditional medicine, catered to nomadic ancestors’ needs. Today, while serving medicinal and cosmetic purposes, Nagaad operates as a community-focused Social Enterprise.
