The producers

 

Mondul Estate was established in 1931 and is a 211 hectare farm on Mondul Mountain, around 25km from Burka town in the Arusha region of Northern Tanzania. This area is the heart of the Maasai land in Tanzania.

 

The Estates (Burka-Selian-Mondul) have about 200 permanent staff, and 200 daily casual staff although in the peak of the harvest season, there can be up to 5,000 staff involved in picking and processing. All permanent staff are provided with housing on the Estates (in four different camps), and the minimum salary is set at 20% above the government minimum requirement. Staff have social security and Labour Union membership included in their contracts, and an Estate credit union also offers loans and advice for education, health and house construction.


Dedicated conservationists sit on the Burka Estates board to uphold the legacy of the estates and ecology of the local biome. From the maintenance of Burka Forest and the restoration of Burka Hill, Burka Estate is faithful to its ecological roots.
