We are passionate about empowering people to live healthy lives. This isn’t just reflected through the food we grow, but in how we care for our employees and the communities where we grow. This is why we are Fair Trade Certified. Fair trade uplifts communities and helps build sustainable livelihoods. Being Fair Trade Certified means we promote fair wages and working conditions, environmental protection and community development for a healthy, empowered and supported workforce.

100% of Fair Trade premiums benefit our employees.


We pay the fees, provide staff to support the Fair Trade program and help the committee however we can. That is our responsibility in the fair sourcing food chain. The Fair Trade premium is how we ask that you also source fairly.
