Aviv is the first estate in Africa to achieve AWS certification. Established in 2008, it regulates the usage of valuable resources and protects against industrial waste and pollution.

AVIV Tanzania have a key focus on increasing natural capital. Water usage, the ecosystem and soil management are crucial to the economic positioning of the plantation. By building a large reservoir they provide free drinking water (2L per day) to workers and the local community, and ensuring there enough water for irrigation without affecting downstream users of the Ruvuma River. The water stewardship programme posits water usage as socially equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial. This is the first of its kind in Africa.

The Region

The remote mountainous region of Ruvuma is located at the southernmost tip of Tanzania, bordering Mozambique to the south and Lake Nyasa and Malawi to the west. A 1,060-kilometre drive from Dar es Salaam on paved and unpaved roads takes roughly 14 hours by car. The district capital is Songea, around 50km east of AVIV estate.

Production at altitude and with fertile, alluvial, loamy soils, allows for a desired slow maturation of the beans. This is the only place in Tanzania that produces enough AAA (screen 19) for full container exports.
