Direct, Locally Sourced Kava
From the outset, we committed to sourcing directly from small Pacific Island farms to ensure we secured the freshest and highest quality Noble kava.
We frequently travel to Fiji, Vanuatu, and Tonga to personally sample dozens of different premium kavas and select the best varieties available. We meet the local farmers and visually inspect the crops and processing techniques. We only select the freshest 100% Noble kava to sell in the Kalm with Kava shop. Read about our trips to Vanuatu and Fiji.
On our trips, we also look for new kava varieties to include as our Premium Reserve Kava.
We believe in supporting kava farmers and their communities.
Purchasing direct from local farmers and avoiding large distributors helps us to ensure the quality of our kava products, and the absence of a middleman means that the farmers and villages receive more money too. Despite the growth in kava exports, many kava-growing communities in the Pacific islands are still relatively poor with both economic and infrastructure challenges. We find ways to give back to these communities.
Our fair trade and community approach means we have always worked to build both strong, business partnerships and personal friendships with our suppliers and their local villages. Our business model is based on mutual respect and understanding.
