Our work model

Kishé believes in a completely transparent value chain. In this new model we value everyone's contribution.

Kishé is determined to consolidate an Alternative Distribution Model, in which all involved from our farmer partners to our local distributors can prosper and live with dignity to heal both communities and individuals through the unique collaboration found in business to encourage community building both domestically (in the US) and abroad; and to foster long-term relationships between ethical consumers and smallholder farmers.
