MS ORGANIC Vanilla Beans under Hachi Tradings, based in the Netherlands. We grow, process and import vanilla beans from Uganda to the Netherlands. We are committed to the concept of Direct Trade, which makes an impactful difference for both farmers and consumers. Our vanilla comes straight from Uganda and is produced on our own farm and by farmers we partner with. We are obsessed with all natural vanilla produced under organic farming practices. These include intercropping of vanilla with other crops. Our system helps to preserve the soils and keeps on providing food for the farmers.
Why Ugandan Vanilla Beans?
Vanilla beans from Uganda are unique. The beans are rich in aroma and deep in flavor. They are suitable for all purposes from baking, cooking, making desert to ice cream flavoring. Ugandan vanilla beans are heavy, on average grade A bean weighs between 5-7 grams. The vanillin content is also high.
Uganda the pearl of Africa, is blessed with good loamy soils and weather that is suitable for the great natural growth of the vanilla plant. The two seasons allow us to harvest vanilla twice a year, ensuring a continuous and fresh supply.
Vanilla in Uganda is intercropped with bananas and other crops such as coffee. These provide a perfect shade for optimal vanilla growth. Our vanilla is fully natural and purely organically grown. We carefully cure the beans to preserve it's rich aroma and flavors.
How We Work
At MS ORGANIC Vanilla Beans, we work under the concept of Direct Trade: Our beans are direct from the farm straight to you. We have our own vanilla plantations. But we also collaborate with other farmers, mainly women who supply us with green vanilla pods.
We ensure that only the ripe and mature pods are being harvested, both at our own farm as well from the farms of our partners. After harvesting we sort the beans and start the curing process which involves carefully sun drying to get the premium quality dark brown beans with the earthy look. We are dedicated to high quality vanilla that is flavorful and all natural.
We understand the labor-intensive nature of vanilla growing, and of the careful need of curing of the beans. That's why we ensure that our partner farmers receive a fair price, which is higher than the average price on the market. This brings a win-win situation: good quality vanilla for you, and happy farmers with a fair income.
