Early starts, long days, hard physical work—being a farmer is no walk in the park. So, since 2000, we’ve partnered with Gadjah Mada University to lend a hand to local soy bean farmers through technical assistance and financing. Together, we run education programmes that give farmers planting advice, teach them how to increase yields, and improve quality and efficiency. With your support we’ve reached over 10,500 smallholder farmers! And our separate “Women’s Empowerment” programme has brought a little fempowerment to soy bean farming, helping over 3,000 women farmers.
Every Bango Supports Farmer Training
Most of Indonesian cuisine is built on kecap soy sauce’s pourable flavour explosion—and we want to keep it that way! That’s why every splash of Bango you use to amp up your cooking helps ensure the farmers responsible for this magic little bean increase their income, keep their farms and improve their quality of life.
Working with Gadjah Mada to help 10,500 hardworking soy bean farmers
Super charging soy bean farming with Mallika
Our partnership with Gadjah Mada has been able to go one step further than just providing education—the brilliant minds there actually created a new variety of black soy bean! Step forward, Mallika! This super hero soy bean variant is robust enough to withstand tough growing conditions and results in a better yield. It’s an innovation with positive environmental and social impact and allows the long-term sustainability of a crop that’s integral to so many people’s wellbeing.
Together, we can ensure farmers keep the soy bean dream alive
With your support we can maintain those sturdier crops and improved bean yields, which means improved livelihoods for the farmers, which means even better bean yields moving forward. It’s a nice big cycle of good that you’re an integral part of—every time you use Bango you’re helping ensure soy bean farmers keep doing what they do, which means you can keep bringing a little bang to your favourite dishes.
