WHO ARE WE?
Ohana is a social enterprise connecting coffee and tea farmers through a #fairchain concept with social responsible businesses to achieve collective impact. Ohana organically grows, quality controls and directly trades unique coffees and teas. We are a social enterprise where through inclusive growth we evolve education, skills, employment and foster biodiversity for the communities we work with.
OUR #FAIRCHAIN MODEL
Ohana uses its a social funding and impact management built on the blockchain. Ohana incentives to run transparently, by making sure that the farmers are getting paid more. The impact on each farm is measured by annual surveys, making it easier for our customers to identify a social enterprise that actually works. Shared impact data also helps reduce due diligence and reporting costs, and helps social responsible businesses to collaborate more effectively.
