What Can Coke and the Gates Foundation Do For You?

It looks like the Coca-Cola Company and the Gates Foundation are at it again...

These two powerhouses, along with the non-profit TechnoServe, are teaming up to enable over 50,000 small fruit farmers in Uganda and Kenya to increase their productivity and double their incomes by the year 2014.

This project aims to create new market opportunities for local farmers whose fruits will be used for Coca-Cola's locally produced and sold fruit juices.
