Equatoria Teak Company’s coffee programme featured on Africa Daily podcast from BBC World Service

“It is a sign of hope. And hope is life.”

Coffee farmer Clement Rabi, from Equatoria Teak Company, part of our agriculture, food and forestry division, talks to the Africa daily podcast from the BBC World Service about our new coffee project in South Sudan.

It’s a conversation about South Sudan we rarely hear – about fertile land and economic potential. South Sudan’s “green belt” has some of the best growing conditions in the world for high value crops that could help the country progress transition away from dependency on oil.

And who can resist the dulcet tones of Alan Kasujja?!

Here’s more information about “Excelling in Excelsa” – our coffee outgrower project at Equatoria Teak Company, supported by Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
