Sourced from Rwanda Trading company which was established in 2009 as a vehicle for positive social impact. This group has displayed a consistent commitment to securing economic freedom and security for smallholder farmers by building resilient, transparent supply chains. The group owns and operates sixteen wet mills and works directly with farmers throughout Rwanda – buying, milling, processing and marketing their coffees – while investing in producing communities through agribusiness training programs. Since 2013, these programs, which focus on cultivation innovation and reducing costs of production, have resulted in an 86 percent increase in farm revenue for RTC's producer-partners. It’s a highly collaborative effort, which fuels sustainable economic stability from the ground up.
