SDU role

The SDU is supporting the leading Arabica coffee exporter in Tanzania, Taylor Winch, who worked with the government in 2018 to re-introduce direct purchase agreements with smallholders and cooperatives. With the help of the SDU, Taylor Winch is developing a capacity building program for both smallholder farmers and Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Societies (AMCOs), including certification preparation and compliance, and the dissemination of good agricultural practices, enabling smallholders to achieve improved quality and yields. They will also support leadership building and business management within the AMCOs.
