    Uganda

    Kawacom is the Ugandan branch of the ECOM Agro-Industrial Group, and is, since 1996, the leader in sustainable coffee initiatives and export of certified coffees. Kawacom believes that by investing in farming communities the company can positively impact the quality of life of its members and the environment in the areas in which it works. During the harvest season, Kawacom encourages farmers to deliver cherry to their new, state-of-the-art wet mills instead of hand pulping on their farm. This has given their projects increased control over processing activities, which can be challenging in the region as rains during the harvest season are common.
