Ethical and Fair Trade

Organic Coffee from Uganda

We Believe that Our Fair Trade Cooperation with Local Farmers in Uganda will bring you Coffee That Tastes Incredible

Simultaneously

The main goal of Farmer’s Friends is to empower women in the coffee production in Uganda.

Women play a central role in the production of coffee in the country, both at the initial level of planting, to harvesting and within the value chain process.

Women doing over 70% of all labour needed in this production, are benefitting very limited, compared to men. Women in Uganda have the smallest benefit share at all stages in the process. 

The main goal of Farmer’s Friends is to change this and teach women and their children how to sustain themselves within the coffee production in Uganda.

Our Project

Farmer’s Friends mainly focuses on supporting coffee farmers in rural areas. In general farmers are only earning a fraction of their potential income by selling it straight to big concerns and companies. Farmer´s Friends supports ethical cooperation. Furthermore, women´s input in the coffee production in Uganda is over 70%, but reality is that women are not getting their reasonable share at all.  We would love to see women live a more sustainable life within the country and to be not so much dependant on their husbands.
