And that Ethiopia, its farmers and the community are not benefiting at all from teff is something we should not accept. Yonas Alemu is an Ethiopian entrepreneur with a commitment: helping Ethiopian farmers benefit from the commercialisation of teff, the world’s smallest grain, native to the Horn of Africa. “We grow up knowing about kachi kachi, which is the stone we feel when we eat our injera (flatbread made from teff)”, Alemu explains. This hampers Ethiopian farmers’ ability to sell their products on the market, which is where Lovegrass comes in. Last year, Lovegrass’ farmers harvested 2 tonnes of teff and this year Alemu expects an even better result.
