Coffee Farmer Thriving Index

With support from the Small Foundation, we are launching the Coffee Farmer Thriving Index in East Africa. We are building a representative benchmark of coffee farmers in Uganda and inviting coffee companies across East Africa to understand the wellbeing of farmers in their supply chains through a standardized, remote farmer survey. The Farmer Thriving Index covers the themes of Living Income, Food Security, Financial Resilience and Farming outlook.

We’re consulting with a working group to finalize the methodology, building a panel of Ugandan coffee farmers, and recruiting ~ 30 coffee companies from across East Africa to be a part of our first Coffee Farmer Thriving Index.
