 Waitrose & Partners Foundation

The Waitrose & Partners Foundation and Farm Africa have been working together since 2017. Farm Africa manages the Foundation’s programme of activities in Kenya with the aim of improving the livelihoods of employees and their families in the Waitrose & Partners supply chain.

Every time customers buy a product with a Waitrose & Partners Foundation logo, their purchase includes a contribution to the Foundation, which helps invest back into farmer and worker communities, increasing income opportunities and improving access to education and healthcare.

Farm Africa conducted detailed assessments with farm workers across seven supplier farms. Based on our findings, we collaborated with farm workers to develop a programme of projects around five thematic areas: Access to Education, Access to Finance, Health & Wellbeing, Water & Sanitation, and Environment & Green Energy.

Cabrito Goat Meat

Cabrito Goat Meat

James Whetlor believes we should all be eating more goat. It's sustainable, ethical, highly nutritious and very delicious. James founded Cabrito Goat Meat after keeping a few goats to solve a land management problem, and discovering how many billy goats are wasted in the dairy industry. Drawing on experience of the London restaurant industry, James was a chef in the capital for 10 years, Cabrito has created and has continued to grow a sustainable market for kid goat meat. All Cabrito kids are a by-product of the dairy industry and would have in the past be euthanized shortly after birth. In a world of dwindling resources and rising food prices Cabrito believes this cannot be justified. They now have a network of farms producing high quality meat from a previously wasted resource.

James has been a support of Farm Africa for 4 years and donates 50% of the royalties from his double aware-winning book GOAT to Farm Africa. GOAT tells the story of how food and farming culture developed in the west without the help of this staple of global agriculture, and showcases the best recipes from around the world using this delicious meat.
