Twin is a development through trade NGO working with 33 producer organisations representing 300,000 coffee, cocoa and nut smallholders in 17 countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia. Our trading company Twin Trading markets and trades quality coffee and cocoa with development impact. Twin and Twin Trading work hand in hand to access value-added markets on behalf of our producer partners, balancing producer support with market demand.
Twin seeks to strengthen producer organisations as a key route to empowerment and sustainable development for smallholder farmers. We take a partnership based approach which reflects both producer and business needs to foster long-term trading relationships that benefit all actors in the value chain. Our aim is to demonstrate that our approach to inclusive, sustainable business is successful, replicable, and scalable – as well as delivering long-lasting, transformational change for smallholders.
A world where trade benefits everyone engaged in it; where business respects and supports the people and ecosystems it touches; where smallholder farmers have the power to shape their own business and community development.
To harness and shape the market to deliver social, environmental and economic development for smallholder farming communities in developing countries.
