A Project Can Make a Difference
Imagine a World Without Coffee…
COFFEE FARMING IS BECOMING HARDER.
Coffee farmers today receive around the same amount for their coffee as they did 40 years ago. This is due to global coffee markets, affected by supply and demand, that keep commodity prices low.
With labour, agricultural inputs, tools, resources, land, seeds, and cost of living becoming more and more expensive, the price of coffee can drop below the cost of production.
As prospects dwindle, younger generations of coffee farmers migrate to cities in search of better life.
The average age of a coffee farmer is 56 years old
Whilst farming is getting harder the coffee industry itself is booming. The retail coffee market is estimated to be worth over $83 billion USD per year. However...
Without access to external markets, farmers have to sell their coffee at local markets for local prices outside of their control.
Farm profitability is at the heart of wellbeing and resilience in coffee growing communities. To protect the future of coffee we need to find immediate ways of making production more sustainable. One that puts the farmer first, increases income and makes coffee farming a more viable option.
Across the world 80% of the coffee produced is grown by 25 million smallholder coffee farmers and their families who rely on coffee for their livelihoods.
What we did?
We Created a New Model
This project aims to create a model for coffee where producers can access the higher value parts of the coffee chain and fully benefit from the value of their crop, gaining a higher price for their coffee.
How We Did it
Partnering with like-minded companies and organisations we have pre-financed the supply chain stages after coffee has left the farm.
the future of coffee is now
All of the profit from each bag of Farm to Home Coffee sold goes directly back to the farmer and contributes to the income, wellbeing and future of farming families and communities in East Africa.
With Farm to Home Coffee, we hope to provide to you the freshest, most traceable coffee available, while proving that the value we all place in coffee can be accessed by the people who grow it. Together we can promote a new model in which coffee works for everyone.
