Myanmar Project

 

 

 

 

At over 1,000 meters above sea level, 

 

layers of raw soil nutrients have accumulated 

 

over thousands of years, giving Burmese 

 

coffee an unforgettable unique flavour.

“BON COFFEE” Myanmar select coffee beans hail from a small town called “Hopong” 

in Shan State, northern Myanmar.Rugged terrain, remote location and an average 

elevation of about 800 meters, coupled with a lugubrious climate and fertile soil that

has been deposited for thousands of years, has made this one of the regions with 

the highest poppy planting density and drug production in the “Golden Triangle”.

 

According to statistics from the United Nations Programme,

most of the 15 million poor people in Myanmar are concentrated in remote mountainous areas.

As the drug problem threatens the security of the international community and hinders local development, 

poppy cultivation is illegal. But for the poppy growers here,

the only law that really matters is to survive. 

To free the local people from an opium-dependent economy,

since the 1990s international organizations and neighboring China have promoted “alternative 

planting projects” in local areas,

helping farmers cultivate other crops such as rubber and fruit.

In cases, mulberry trees and other plants have successfully 

replaced opium poppies as viable cash crops.

From the initial coffee bean planting to the final harvest 

and roasting, we support alternative planting projects 

and value sustainable production methods.

By developing all production chains in Myanmar, we 

can provide jobs and training as we help a struggling 

region finally change track to a more sustainable 

development path.

Opium, heroin, morphine, cocaine and other organic 

drugs are largely grown in least developed countries. 

Here, armed conflicts may occur year round, 

politics are unstable and farmers can only rely on the land 

to survive. In the past, in order to prevent drugs from being 

shipped abroad, mandatory eradication was 

carried out on drug crops. 

In order to deal with this kind of suppression, farmers migrated to even more remote places to plant drugs,

causing great damage to the environment. 

Amidst forced migration, poverty, hunger and armed conflict, drug crops have revived and continue to proliferate.

One way to break this destructive cycle is through planting “replacement crops”.

In short, poppies, the precursors for opium and heroin, can be replaced by other cash crops like sugarcane, bananas, mulberry trees and coffee beans.

Successfully implementing crop replacement requires significant planning, preparation and engagement.

Farmers must first be provided with essential materials, such as loans and capital.

Safety and protective measures, roads and transportation facilities must also all be in place.

The successful implementation of alternative planting measures requires wise government and support from social, health and education services.

What does sustainable production mean in the coffee industry?

Every link in the coffee industry chain is closely intertwined and affects each other at three levels: economic, social and environmental.

Environmental value refers to minimizing damage to nature;

Social value refers to meeting human needs;

Economic value refers to profitability, ensuring that projects have certain funds to ensure operation.
