Twin and Cenfrocafe partnership
Twin started working with Cenfrocafé in 2009, and has been trading with the association since then through our coffee business, Twin Trading. Today, Cenfrocafé is a key supplier for Twin Trading.
Twin has partnered Cenfrocafé and Pret A Manger to offer an education and entrepreneurship programme to teach young farmers computers skills, cooperative management, coffee production, sustainable agricultural practices and coffee quality control.
