Henry and Sons also created the FSCE, a nonprofit organization that seeks to help bring back the Philippines into the global spotlight through sustainable coffee farming and by helping the local coffee growers.
TGC is a social enterprise platform founded by Henry and Sons to support the FSCE on its aim to create a more sustainable local coffee-farming landscape.
'This is why, at Henry and Sons, we strengthen our synergistic partnerships with FSCE and its capability- building arm, Institute for Coffee Excellence, which enables farmers and roasters to work together on knowledge transfer on best farming practices to improve cup quality,' Conlin said.
FSCE Director Emil Cuaresma shared that the foundation, as well as the platforms and programs under it, serve as avenues for establishing shared prosperity amongst the local coffee growers of Benguet.
FSCE Director Emil Cuaresma also gave audiences a peek at the foundation's 2018 calendar filled with programs lined up each month to help reach the goal of a more sustainable coffee farming landscape.
