Rwanda Inzovu

Rwanda Trading Company was established in 2009 as a vehicle for positive social impact. They are committed to securing economic freedom and security for smallholder farmers by building resilient, transparent supply chains.

They believe that profitable and ethical business go hand in hand. Their model is built on trust and communication. From the outset, they have established partnerships with farmers to help them in the field and to work with them to create stability and mitigate risk.

They focus on quality and invest in production. RTC offer financial literacy, agribusiness management and agronomy training programs to increase yield and keep them operational, profitable and healthy. They oversee milling, processing and quality control and provide access to the futures market to secure the best prices for farmers. It’s a highly collaborative effort that generates long-term economic stability from the ground up.

Their headquarters and dry mill are in Kigali where the majority of their 250 full-time and 500 seasonal employees work. RTC processes and exports 25% of Rwanda’s yearly coffee production. They own and operate sixteen wet milling stations and work directly with farmers throughout Rwanda – buying, milling, processing and marketing their coffees.

Today, Rwanda is Africa’s ninth largest Arabica coffee producer with about 450,000 small farms which average less than one hectare in size (about 165 coffee trees per coffee farmer) totaling about 28,000 hectares in coffee cultivation. Most of the green coffee is wet processed often at communal washing stations used by numerous coffee farmers.
