True With the help of the Impact Institute, In line with Fairtrade’s ambition to see small-scale farmers earning a living income that provides them with a sustainable, dignified livelihood, a study by the Impact Institute was done to assess the actual coffee farmer household income. We developed a rigorous and scalable methodology to measure the farmer household income of coffee producers across 7 countries, being: Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Through local contacts, data from approximately 500 farms was collected. Collected data on wages and incomes was then compared to regional benchmarks. The analysis included insights in the distribution of farmer household income, the profitability of coffee and the value added (profit + labour costs) per FTE.
