China corporate photographer: LDC Annual Report, Yunnan Coffee Farming

Yunnan province in Southern China has emerged as a coffee producing region this past decade and is now becoming the focus of attention as a new player on the global stage for coffee trading.

The Louis Dreyfus Company is working in close collaboration with coffee farmers around Asia to help and promote sustainable farming methods, aiming to raise the ethical and quality standards of production and overall improve the entire supply chain.

My latest collaboration with LDC saw me travelling to Yunnan to document the work of farmers in the hills of Pu’er, as well as the quality control, warehousing and shipping process in Kunming for the company’s regional and global annual report and sustainability report.

Singapore Photographer | Corporate Social Responsibility - Coffee Farming

As more and more companies worldwide are now engaging into corporate social responsibilty initiatives, I was recently assigned by the Louis Dreyfus Company to document their CSR training programs for coffee farmers in Vietnam and Indonesia, showcasing the various environments and group activities led by LDC agronomists in a documentary style to illustrate the company's global and regional annual reports. The project took place over a period of 2 weeks and brought us to coffee plantions in the Lam Dong and Dak Lak provinces of Southern Vietnam, as well as North Sumatra and West Lampung regions in Indonesia.
