Mullege’s inception began in 1953 by Awel who had a great vision, but with little means to fulfill it.
Awel began a small coffee supplier to exporters business and educated his son, Mustafa, who used to unilaterally negotiate prices with farmers to sell to exporters by using donkeys as transportation in the early 1970s.
Mustafa’s sagacious business approach allowed the business to blossom, and by 1996, Mullege went from a small supplier to an exporter with fully loaded coffee containers.
Mullege also had a vast experience in the processing industry of agricultural products such as processing of red coffee cherries into exportable green coffee beans. The industrial complex consists of ten pulping stations and three Hulling stations located strategically within the coffee producing areas of the country.
There are also two major plants located in the capital city of Addis that process green coffee beans for export. The production capacity of the industries are 220 Tons daily of export quality green coffee beans.
