Chris Molaei GEOG 103 World Regions in Southern Illinois 1. The product I found is a type of oil, palm oil to be specific . It is imported to Southern Illinois from Ghana, which is found in the region of Sub-Saharan Africa . The brand of my product is A-Jay's Palm Oil, based in Ghana . The price was $3.50 for a liter bottle made of plastic, full of the palm oil . 2. I managed to find a product from Sub-Saharan Africa in about 10 minutes , albeit only after having asked the storeemployee for assistance who very quickly was able to show me a variety of different foods from places such as Kenya and South Africa . I only had to go to one store to find a product from my region . 3. I went to the International Grocery to find my product . It had a very wide selection of foreign foods , from cheeses to spices to meats. From what I could gather, the business was not a franchise or chain store . 4. Palm Oil is integral in the economy and culture of Sub-Saharan Africa , specifically Western and Central Africa, as it easily grown in the warm climate of the region
