Coffee Sustainability at the Origin
With the financial support from Gevalia and the Kraft Heinz Company, TechnoServe worked with smallholder coffee farmers in the regions of El Paraíso and Intibucá to increase the quantity and improve the quality of Honduran coffee in a way that creates additional value for smallholder farmers at the origin of the value chain.
Over the course of four years, 2,000 Honduran smallholder coffee farmers received training on key agronomic practices that boosted yields and improved the quality of their coffee through this initiative. The project also focused on helping farmers find new markets that reward them for the quality of the coffee they produce. As part of the project’s objective to improve security and fight the seasonal hunger that affects coffee producing communities, participating farmers had the opportunity to receive training on improved practices for basic grain production, and exposure to new cash crops that they can produce to diversify their income sources.
