Fair Trade

Making Sustainable Local Development Possible

 

Since 2006, Albert’s Organics has been a strong and reliable partner in supporting Fair Trade Products. For example, through our purchases, Albert’s has contributed over $420,000 in Community Development Funds to banana growing communities in Ecuador and Peru since 2006.

 

This support helps provide small farmers direct access to international markets and the tools and resources they need to succeed and thrive. Fair Trade funding makes sustainable local development in rural and poor communities possible. It allows farmers and workers to develop infrastructure that improves their communities and their lives. These include providing dental and health care programs, clinics for direct medical care, organic gardens for superior nutrition, compost available to all farmers, the care and cleaning of their drinking water, education for workers, safety programs, protective equipment, running water, bathrooms, education for students, marches to support workers rights, and participation in banana forums.

 

Participating in Fair Trade programs has given Albert’s Organics an opportunity to directly enrich and improve the lives of growers throughout the world.
