Establishing a fair and transparent business – with its aim to benefit some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world – is having such an impact on Mt Elgon. It provides employment to more than 100 people, it provides a good and fair return for more than 625 farmers’ produce, and it genuinely provides hope in the community. This is not about hand-outs, but about ensuring dignity and empowering every farmer and every person involved. It’s also about creating jobs and having a knock-on impact on a whole range of supporting industries – whether carpenters, labourers, truck drivers, factory workers. We’re seeing a whole wider industry waking up to the potential of a well-run specialty coffee enterprise. We'd love you to join us, partner with us, in making a positive impact here in beautiful Uganda.
