We manage integrated supply chains for 5 main products: cashew, cotton, sesame, cocoa, and green coffee, employing 130 staff and more than 1,300 seasonal workers at peak season.
Our 2,000 hectare certified green Arabica coffee plantation is located in the Songea Rural District of Southern Tanzania along the Ruvuma River, and is managed to strict environmental and social standards by our AVIV Tanzania subsidiary. We are proud that Olam Aviv was the first agri-business globally and first business in Africa to have a site achieve the Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard. Certified by Rainforest Alliance/UTZ and 4C, the plantation employs many people from the local community and has invested in social infrastructure.
In overseeing every stage of the supply chain across our products, from origination through to distribution, we add value for our customers and help them manage their risks more effectively.
The crèche at Aviv coffee plantation is hoping to make tremendous changes to the community. During peak season, Aviv employs a little over 1,000 casual workers on the plantation overseeing an array of tasks. The majority of these workers are women from the neighbouring villages working in the nursery, weeding the fields, harvesting coffee and tending to pulped coffee in parchment. The children are provided with nourishment and a vibrant stimulating environment for them to flourish while their parents are at work. The crèche also includes a learning room with books and craft materials for at the children’s disposal, a playground outside to create a balanced and safe environment to nurture the young minds.
We work with over 2000 people across 7 locations.
