Rikolto has been working with farmer organisations in the Democratic Republic of Congo for over 30 years. In 2021, our projects impacted the lives of 28,255 producers.

Since 2012, Rikolto decided to focus on two promising agricultural value chains: Arabica coffee and rice. As of 2019, we also work in the cocoa sector. In 2021, we launched our Good Food for Cities programme in Bukavu and Goma.
