Cultivation

VANILLA FARMER PROGRAMME
 
To encourage sustainable and high quality cultivation, the programme has established links with over 1,200 farmers in the Kilimanjaro, Arusha and Morogoro regions.  Through Farmer Champion representatives, our registered farmers receive training in all aspects of vanilla husbandry and good agricultural practices.  We also provide expert advice on financial and organizational topics for farmer groups, in order to help farmers organise themselves into registered entities.

Flavours

ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS FROM THE SLOPES OF MOUNT KILIMANJARO
 
In every aspect of production, from cultivation through to post-harvest processing and manufacturing, we seek to use only natural materials, inputs and ingredients.  Where possible, we employ women farmers to provide them with an alternate source of income.  Our quality has been recognised both in the regional and international markets, and we continue to explore ways to improve our products and develop new flavours.
