Meet Pamela

Pamela grew up in Uganda during the brutal, two decade long war that ravaged Northern Uganda.  Seeing communities torn apart, she made a commitment to be a part of the area's redevelopment.  

After pursuing her MBA in International Business in New York, Pamela co-founded Pameri Organic in 2012.  She grew up understanding the many health benefits of Nilotica Shea. In Northern Uganda, Nilotica Shea is well known for its ultra-moisturizing qualities and used for skincare and haircare.  With its anti-inflammatory and high antioxidant profile, Nilotica Shea is referred to locally as “Edible Shea” and used in food recipes.  

Pameri Organic set out to raise global awareness about Nilotica Shea as a superior, high-quality natural ingredient.  Only found in Northern Uganda & Southern Sudan along the shea belt on the shores of River Nile, it’s not as well known as other Shea varieties. Nilotica Shea has become the secret ingredient of many top luxury beauty brands as customers across the globe gain familiarity with it and fall in love with its benefits.  

As social entrepreneurs, Pameri Organic is honored to have developed lasting relationships with the most hard-working & dedicated shea collectors in the area.  Through their work with the nonprofit organization, the Northern Uganda Shea Umbrella, they continue to support local communities through economic, social, and environmental initiatives.
