About the farm

Tucked into the foothills of the Rwenzori mountain range sits a stretch of lush soil enriched by eras of volcanic activity. Here you’ll find 900+ smallholder farmers sharing this fertile land, with each growing 1-3 acres of cocoa as their primary income source.

About the Partnership

Through local partner, Latitudes we support free life and disability insurance to all our partner farmers, as well as access to discounted health insurance that supports their ability to earn an income. We’re also building the wealth and financial resilience of our suppliers through ongoing microfinancing initiatives in conjunction with the Rabobank Foundation.
