We're proudly Ugandan, proudly African. We partner responsibly with families and farms from different regions and countries committed to cultivating the best seeds, soil and growing the environment around them.
In our process of sourcing or identifying farmers to work with, our team of Strategic Sourcing Managers don’t just pick on a region or team of farmers based on how much /acreage can be grown - our managers also analyze the household livelihood status of the farmers, their social challenges and identify how best we can partner to assist them live a better and improved life.
Lake House ethically sources oils and butters from Uganda (oils that are grown and extracted from farmers all over Uganda) and also some from neighboring East Africa (Kenya & Tanzania especially for coconut oil).
We responsibly partner with families and farms from different regions of the countries who are committed to cultivating the best seeds, soil and growing the environment around them. As a result, this gives us the best quality of our finished products.
We don’t own or operate any farms on which the botanical and trees are grown. We have started a small initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas where most of the farmers live. Lake House is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices.
We also employ, train and equip especially the youth with skills on how to tend to the plants, botanicals, trees and shrubs, on how to harvest and extract and on how to socially contribute to the growth of their communities.
We strive to ensure that our sourcing and procurement methods always remain Impactful to society and the environment.
