About The Event: 

In collaboration with the Singapore Coffee Festival, Asia For Good is running several initiatives related to coffee, café culture and social consciousness.

Asia for Good Presents Good Market - A Socially Conscious Collection at Singapore Coffee Festival

Asia for Good by DBS Foundation is pleased to present Good Market – a collection of four social enterprises (SEs) on show at Singapore Coffee Festival. These purpose-driven companies all have a positive impact on their communities and are from across Asia and have been carefully selected from Asia For Good’s social enterprise directory to take up booths in Good Market. The four social enterprises are:

 Alisan Oolong Tea

1. Aurora Social Enterprise (Taiwan)

Aurora works with Taiwanese aboriginals to produce organic agricultural produce and food which is also sold at its cafe. Among its products are coffee and tea (including the ever-popular Alishan), all of which go towards supporting Taiwan’s indigenous population.

 

Boxgreen snacks

2. Boxgreen (Singapore)

Healthy snack boxes delivered to your door – that’s what Boxgreen does. But to sweeten the deal, for every box you buy, a meal is donated to someone in need through Willing Hearts. Snacks are deliciously good for you, featuring nuts, dried fruit and – our favourite – crunchy vegetable chips.

 

Kakoa

3. Krakakoa (Indonesia)

Previously called Kakoa, Krakakoa is an Indonesian premium chocolate company that sources their cocoa beans directly form smallholder farmers in Indonesia. They offer training and resources to farmers, and pay premium prices for their beans. Flavours are distinctly Asian, such as salted cashew & coconut Brittle chocolate, chilli as well as sea salt and pepper chocolate. Look out for their coffee and chocolate tasting session on Sunday June 12th at the LiveBettr Lab.

 

 East Bali Cashews

4. East Bali Cashews (Indonesia)

East bali Cashews are natural, sourced directly from farmers, carbon-neutral and crunchtastic! East Bali Cashews processes the nuts where they’re grown, creating jobs, training, and uniquely "local" cashews. (Most other Bali cashews are exported to india or Vietnam for processing). The social enterprise employs a 90% female workforce and invests in upskilling their staff. Cashews are sold in the international retail market and will be stocked in Singapore in the coming months.
