Empowering B40 Farmers with Coffee

Empowering B40 Farmers with Coffee

B40 coffee farmers in Sabah produce a range of quality coffee seeds, but without proper distribution and heavy reliance on the “middle man”, they struggle to make ends meet. In an effort to sell sustainable coffee while helping the Sabahan farmers earn the profits they deserve, BosCo decided to only use beans from Sabah while controlling markups and price hikes in the process. We speak to Viviantie Sarjuni, one half of the duo behind Borneo Specialty Coffee (BosCo), about the decision to become a social enterprise, the effects of the MCO on their supply chain, as well as the speed at which they wish to grow their coffee outlets
