HIGHLIGHTS

Improving growing conditions for coffee – and as a consequence, for cocoa and vanilla – by providing shade, humidity and improving soil quality.

Developed in partnership with the Louis Dreyfus Foundation, the Louis Dreyfus Company, Nespresso and Ben & Jerry’s. Together, we support small-scale coffee producers.

Participating farmers are members of the Rwenzori Farmers Cooperative Union (RFCU), which includes cooperatives from the districts of Kasese, Kabarole, Ntoroko and Bundibugyo in the Rwenzori region.
