KENTA AA ORGANIC
Region: Mount Ambra, PNG
Nestled in the untouched rainforest habitat at the foothills of Mount Ambra is Kenta Village. The natural flora and fauna provides a unique insight into the habitat of the Highlands. This back drop is ideally suited to grow premium quality Arabica coffee which is mild but is full bodied with necessary acidity to make a superb cup.
There are about 2000 residents in the Kenta Village. To them coffee growing is vital to their livelihood providing much needed revenue to meet their social obligations. Vegetable and other crops are grown alongside coffee to suit the market demand. A state of the art wet factory has been built on the plantation. The factory is eco-friendly with pollution control measures in place.
Recognising the need to improve the lot of the small growers, Kenta in conjunction with the World Bank has successfully implemented the Progressive Partnership in Agriculture Project. 350 farmers are now under the program and changes to their livelihood are already noticeable.
A HIV AIDS Clinic and Outpost has been set up at Kenta with support from the Western Highlands Provincial Health Authorities. Regular clinics and education programs are conducted on site. Personal Viability and Gender Equality courses are also conducted as part of the community development program.
