Kordofal Taste is established by an engineer who has been working in the design and fabrication of machines for the extraction of the powder and oil, of the Baobab, spina-christi, doum and other wild trees in Sudan. In 2007 a machine for the extraction of the powder for the three pulps was successfully developed, tested with remarkable results. Kordofal Taste was established in 2007 to produce and market these products. The factory is located in El Obeid, the capital of the state of North Kordofan. This state has a large population of Baobab tree, and the tree itself is being used as the state emblem.
