We regret to announce that Abaine passed away in May 2021

We regret to announce that Mr Yorokamu K. Abainenamar (Abaine) passed away in May 2021. A long-time active supporter of cooperatives and Fairtrade Certification and inspiring pioneer of the movement he will be very much missed. Abaine worked with Rwenzori Sustainable Trade Centre, Uganda (RSTC) from 2012 as a value chain and marketing advisor for cotton and coffee. He served on various boards in Uganda, and outside Uganda. Abaine brought a wealth of experience, of over 30years, in coffee, cotton and cocoa production, value chain management and marketing with his academic knowledge and applications from his degree in Statistics & Applied Economics MUK, and M.Soc. Sc. (Economics), University of Birmingham, UK. Abaine was a member and supporter of the Fair Trade Society and Journal of Fair Trade as well as being a Board member of the RSTC. Above all Abaine is a fondly remembered and sadly missed colleague and friend. Tributes to follow. Please send your tribute contribution either as a comment or by email to ellies@joft.org.uk
