Buy Amanprana and support the fair trade coconut project
Amanprana's coconut products have been fair trade and certified by Ecocert for many years. Now Amanprana has decided to draft its own fair trade Charter. Why, you may ask? Because many fair trade organizations have become elitist and unaffordable for local farmers. What started off as a humanitarian cause for them became a commercial label, in pursuit of profit. The new Amanprana fair trade coconut project gives employment to 300 families in the Philippines and Sri Lanka. The money that we previously paid to the certification body is now added to the fair trade fund payments, with five percent instead of the previous three percent of coconut purchases now going to the fund. This money is used for education, healthcare, the environment, infrastructure, and equipment for farmers, laborers and suppliers. Sellers are safe in the knowledge they will receive a guaranteed minimum price that will cover all the costs of sustainable production. We don't squeeze out families, we pay them properly. Fair trade is not a matter of charity, but a long-term ethical partnership. Cocos: Bovis 13.700, 70 Yang, GI 0
