The potential for Ethiopian coffee circulation

Circular Agribusiness aims in minimizing the value lost in the processing of raw materials, components & products in a closed cycle. Coffee circulation prevents & optimizes waste in coffee processing significantly contributing to sustainable farming. Studies by the IKEA foundation mention Ethiopia’s great potential for circular agribusiness. Ethiopian coffee processing releases 192,000MT coffee husk per year which can be processed into organic fertilizers, ice-creaming toppings & bedding for chickens. Coffee cherry pulp byproduct covers 29% of the cherry during wet processing. This byproduct serves as livestock feed with good results apart from serving as a fertilizer on a commercial scale.
