Entrepreneurship Spotlight: Westrock Coffee
Coffee is one of the world’s most traded commodities, and also one of the most unequal in its distribution of profits across the value chain, taking advantage of primarily small holder farmers for the benefit of those at the end of the chain including major branded food companies, retailers, and restaurants. Arkansas-based Westrock Coffee was founded to bring transparency and economic impact to those producers that put their entire lives into the coffee we drink.
So, travel with us to breath taking Rwanda while sipping your morning coffee! Learn the founding story of Little Rock’s Westrock Coffee; the impact on Rwandan citizens after the genocide; the coffee production process; and global supply chains—all while sipping a cup at Westrock coffee. Teacher teams will participate in a marketing activity while ‘cupping’ coffee.
