Commitment to Action

High-Impact Agriculture for Colombia's Small-Scale Farmers

Commitment by

Fairtrasa International AG

In 2013, Fairtrasa committed to partner with 3,000 small-scale banana, avocado, and lime farmers and 300 packers in Colombia to bring their local produce to global markets at fair prices in a $1.5 million program over a four-year period. During this time, Fairtrasa will implement its three-tier development model to support farmers at all development stages, by providing them with seeds, capital, tailored training programs and technical support, helping them obtain export certifications, and connecting them to Fairtrasa's global sales network. Fairtrasa will provide support to farmers with logistical support from harvest to packing and shipping, as well as detailed quality reports to provide feedback to farmers to help them meet international quality standards.
