How Fairtrade Doubles Quinoa Farmer Income
Over $320,000 extra revenue to our Fairtrade Quinoa Cooperatives
Since 2012, $320,000 extra revenue has been generated for the quinoa cooperatives thanks to our Fairtrade guarantees. That’s the equivalent to 60 Peruvian farmer annual salaries. (Based on an avg salary of $443 month).
Working with 19 adults with learning disabilities
At the ESAT, Le Havre France
We work with a work assistance establishment (ESAT) in France who help adults with disabilities find work. The work offered is always adapted according to the abilities of the person.
We’ve offset the equivalent of half a million plastic water bottles!
Through our partnership with RePurpose Global we offset the weight of our plastic packs. Since working with them nearly 5000kgs of plastic waste has been diverted from oceans and landfills, and over 50 waste workers and their families have been provided with additional income.
We offset our maritime transport CO2
We are involved in the PurProjet in San Martin, Peru, where they have helped plant over 1.6m trees.
Quinoa is a non-irrigated crop
As quinoa can grow with minimal water, it saves 362 million litres of water annually compared to rice. This hardy crop means it is suited to areas with scarce rainfall and thin soils, like up in the Altiplano in Peru, where we source our organic quinoa from.
Shipping vs flying?
How we transport the quinoa is significant
We make sure to ship all of our products, producing only 18.2 tonnes of carbon. In comparison, if we were to fly we’d emit 113 times more carbon!
