Direct Trade & Fair Price
From the farm straight to you
At VANILLApoint, we grow, process and import naturally grown Vanilla Beans from Uganda to the Netherlands. We are committed to the concept of Direct Trade, which makes an impactful difference for both farmers and consumers.
Our vanilla comes from Uganda and is produced on our own farm and by farmers we partner with. We are obsessed with all natural vanilla produced under regenerative farming practices. This includes intercropping of vanilla with other crops. Our system helps to preserve the soils and keeps on providing food for the farmers.
WHY UGANDAN VANILLA BEANS
Vanilla beans from Uganda are unique. The beans are rich in aroma and deep in flavor. They are suitable for all purposes from baking, cooking, making desert to ice cream flavoring. Ugandan vanilla beans are heavy, on average grade A bean weighs between 5-7 grams. The vanillin content is also high.
Uganda the pearl of Africa, is blessed with good loamy soils and weather that is suitable for the natural growth of the vanilla plant. The two seasons allow us to harvest vanilla twice a year, ensuring a continuous and fresh supply.
Vanilla in Uganda is intercropped with bananas and other crops such as coffee. This provides a perfect shade for optimal vanilla growth. Our vanilla is fully natural and purely organically grown. We carefully cure (processing) the beans to preserve it's rich aroma and flavors.
HOW WE WORK
We work under the concept of Direct Trade: Our beans are direct from farm straight to you. We have our own vanilla plantations but we as well collaborate with other farmers, mainly women who supply us with green vanilla pods.
We ensure that only the ripe and mature pods are being harvested, both at our own farm as well from the farms of our partners. After harvesting we sort the beans and start the curing process which involves carefully sun drying to get the premium quality dark brown beans with the earthy look. We are dedicated to high quality vanilla that is flavorful and all natural.
We understand the labor-intensive nature of vanilla growing, and of the careful need of curing of the beans. That's why we ensure that our partner farmers receive a fair price, which is higher than the average price on the market. This brings a win-win situation; good quality vanilla for you, and happy farmers with a fair income.
THE BEANS ARE VERY FRESH AND VERY RICHLY FILLED
I have been using VANILLA point vanilla for several years now. For that I used the vanilla pods from the wholesaler. I am especially pleased with the price and quality of the product, the beans are very fresh and very richly filled. As a result, the dishes that we make fresh have a very good taste due to the power of the vanilla. I also believe because the vanilla bean is so well filled and smells and tastes powerful that it takes less of it to match the same. So at the end of the line, this is also more economical for us to use. I recommend the vanilla to everyone.

For my patisserie I always looking for the best products for the best price. Here I found the best vanilla. Godfrey Kiwumulo is friendly in contact and the vanilla is always fresh and got good quality. Also not to forget, the price is right. Would recommend
Never had vanilla beans this rich and fresh
The difference between the vanilla beans from Godfrey and the ones you normally find in any store is enormous. Godfrey's vanilla is much bigger and much fresher. The aroma and taste is perfect. Very happy to use this vanilla in my tartlets.

We have been using MS Organic's Vanilla beans for several years now. We are very satisfied with the beans, they are large and well-filled, We also use the peel to make our own vanilla sugar, which has sufficient oil and flavor for this. The beans are very easy to store in the packaging in which they are delivered. We have ordered several times and find the quality maybe a little better each time. What is also important is of course the price which is very competitive.
