Initiated by Ugandan coffee company Ahlod/Kawacom, White Nile started out to cultivate high-quality, organic Arabica coffee sold under the name PÅTÅR at IKEA. Part of the project is to improve sourcing practices, farm management, and everyday family life by working closely with farmers and local communities. The project aims to increase women’s independence and opportunities.
