How We Do It
We offer our cleanest, purest, most unique and powerful natural products. We take head on all the hard work of vertically integrating from field, to factory, to market.
We work directly with almost 1,000 farming families. We organiza, train and oversee an integrated network of producers of high quality organic ingredients.
This alows us to have full traceability for our products, assure quality standards and make sure that the impacts of our operations stay true to our beliefs.
Our approach of working DIRECTLY with the organic farming communities entails we eliminate any and all intermediaries. This means no speculators involved. The price we pay is the price the farmer gets!
We are certified Fair Choice, a social and fair trade standard.
As part of the agreement with our associated farmers we provide:
- Contract farming
- Market prices to farmers
- Farmers protected by Safety Net prices that warrants profitability
- Farm Schools
- Organic certification
- Machinery for hulling
- Solar beds for clean drying
- Farming equipment & tools
