Cultivation

VANILLA FARMER PROGRAMME
 
To encourage sustainable and high quality cultivation, the programme has established links with over 400 farmers in the Kilimanjaro Region and over 700 farmers in the Kagera Region, where vanilla first arrived from Uganda several decades ago.
 

Through Farmer Champion representatives, our registered farmers receive training in all aspects of vanilla husbandry and good agricultural practices.  In addition, we aim to build awareness on improved nutrition and HIV/AIDS.  We also provide expert advice on financial and organizational matters, in order to help farmers organise themselves into formal primary cooperatives.

Flavours and spices

ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS FROM THE SLOPES OF MOUNT KILIMANJARO
 
 
Every aspect of production, from cultivation through to post-harvest processing and manufacturing, seeks to use only natural materials, inputs and ingredients.  Where possible, we staff 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.  Please browse our products section for more details on our flavours and spices, and contact us with any enquiries.
