First 500

Mzuzu Golden Coffee


now closed

We are offering 500 Social Innovators a ‘special package’ to join us on this exciting journey to support Mzuzu Coffee farmers in Malawi, through trade not aid.

Being a part of the FIRST 500 will mean so much to the coffee farmers in Malawi as they will be in control of the whole production chain – maximising their profit. This means all Mzuzu coffee farmers, both men and women, will see a brighter future.

thank you

Thank you to the 120 who joined. We are now on a new journey and are working with to promote coffee that is roasted in country.
