Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsIn 2017, $ 6800 was paid in premiums through the purchase of Fair for Life chia seeds from Argentina. The funds were used to both support children’s meals as well as provide building upgrades for the supplier’s facility.
An After-School Program is supported in the regions of Lules and San Rafael to provide snacks and meals to children in the afternoons. Children from the ages of 3 to 17 years who often do not have a full meal during the day are given nourishment. This includes flour to bake bread; powdered milk; rice; one hot meal per week and plastic tables and chairs.
Through the Fair Trade program, our chia supplier was able to support and improve their building’s structure including running potable water and a sink installed; stove, oven & teapot installed; doors with a lock and windows with bars installed to protect the resources within the building.
