Yvette Tetteh

Yvette Tetteh (CEO) is an entrepreneur with a passion for nourishing the mind and body.

On moving to Ghana from living in the States, she was dismayed to find how difficult it was to find tasty, healthy snacks for her young cousins. She decided to do something about this herself, and Pure and Just was born. Alongside her business partner, Emmanuel Ampadu, Yvette created Yvaya Farm Dried Fruit - the flagship dried fruit brand of a Pure and Just commitment to purpose driven business that works to have a net positive effect on people and the environment.

Her dream is to use food, farming, art, and education to help people live their best, most fulfilling lives. Yvette graduated from Stanford University and studied Agroforestry in Hawaii. She believes strongly in engaging agribusiness as an important means of creating positive social impact and promoting personal wellbeing.
