'The fathers of Ndali Vanilla are over 1,000 Ugandan farmers, who fertilise their vines along 200 miles of unmade roads from the Congelese border to the rift valley.'

Ndali Estate is a 1,000 acre mixed tropical farm amid the explosion craters of the Ndali Volcanic Field in Western Uganda.

The farm specialises in exquisite quality organically grown fair trade vanilla which it buys from Fairtrade certified Rwenzori Farmers and also grows on Ndali.

Ndali Vanilla is cured, milled and extracted on the farm and exported in bulk to major industries. The cream of the crop is packaged in small batches under the Ndali Vanilla brand for retail and wholesale as vanilla pods, powder and extract.

‘Ndali Vanilla… is rich and intense, and the flavour deep, long lasting and absolutely true.’
