DHUWA Coffee now at Woolworths
Griffiths Bros is proud to announce DHUWA Coffee’s major retail debut. DHUWA (pronounced dee:wah and meaning to feel alive in Bidjara language) is now stocked in 100 Woolworths stores nationally.
DHUWA is Indigenous-owned, -managed, and -controlled in partnership with Griffiths Bros Coffee Roasters. Proud Mununjali Palawa man and DHUWA Co-founder Shawn Andrews explains that “it makes sense to pair the oldest culture in the world with Australia’s oldest coffee roaster to deliver premium coffee with a conscience to home baristas.”Griffiths Bros’ Managing Director Peter Patisteas is thrilled DHUWA chose them to help bring the product to life. “We know from our 140-year provenance that coffee is synonymous with conversation and community. The partnership with DHUWA is a way for us to continue this by helping start conversations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.”
DHUWA began in February 2021 during a meeting between grocery giant Woolworths, Indigenous distributor Supply Aus and Griffiths Bros. Fourteen short weeks later and DHUWA coffee in now available in selected Woolworths stores.
DHUWA plans to train and employ Indigenous people, while five per cent of every DHUWA Coffee sold in Woolworths will go to charity partner Dreaming Futures. The not-for-profit supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home care.
