Choose Amanprana and support the Fair Trade coconut project

In the Philippines, Amanprana started a cooperation with Peter Paul and with Ecocert. Ecocert is a French organisation certifying organic and fair trade produce. Peter Paul is one of the very first coconut companies that became independent after the Spanish oppression. It employs 2,000 people while 305 small farmers from the Lezon province supply the organic coconuts. In 2009 we started a joint fair trade project that pays 3% of our purchases into a cooperation fund. That money is used for education and health care, for environmental care, it supports a coconut seed programme and pays towards a better infrastructure for the farmers, workers and suppliers. It is also used to fund an incentive programme for the workers. In addition, the price we pay for the coconuts exceeds the common price by 10%. The project includes an education programme for the workers' children and acquaintances. 40 students will participate in 2010. Peter Paul also maintains a local hospital that is open to its employees as well as the community.
