NOWEK COFFEE COMPANY

Producing coffee since 1984

Growing Futures - Coffee Seedling Program 

The coffee journey begins with the local coffee farmer. In Papua New Guinea 85% of the coffee produced is from smallholder growers, with coffee grown in 15 of the 20 provinces. It is a major source of income for more than 50% of the population.

We strongly believe in maintaining this sustainable industry by investing in education and awareness programs. In 2015, green houses were installed on our sun drying fields to facilitate a coffee seedling nursery. Our goal is to distribute FREE coffee seedlings to surrounding communities and schools, with the hope that they will one day benefit from this cash crop.      

As of February 2018, we have donated over 26,500 seedlings to surrounding villages, communities and schools.

We have set ourselves the target of donating 100,000 seedlings each year. Planning has begun to extend the current nursery to three times its current size in order to achieve our target. 

If you wish to be part of our "Growing Futures" seedling program either as a seedling recipient or you would like to help our cause, please contact us via email at info@nowekcoffee.com.
