Javara

Industry : Food & Beverages
Year selected : July 2016


Javara strives to keep alive the biodiversity of Indonesia’s native agricultural species and support small farmers by selling organic, artisan food products. The company provides technical training, working capital, and access to markets to farmers who lack the financial resources and knowledge to make their products available to consumers. The relationships Javara has formed with these farmers are its strongest asset; they are built on years of trust and transparency. Going forward, the company will focus on moving larger quantities of its highest margin products, while also considering various ways to fund its growth without sacrificing the company’s mission.
