Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsGourmet Gardens is a Uganda-based company with over 15 years experience in organic and fair trade vanilla and cocoa production and exporting. Its vision is to be renowned for outstanding products that are produced in harmony with nature and in a lasting and fair relationship with local producers.

Fair trade activities focus on farmer households from whom the products derive and the workers and their families of the company.
Because farmers are scattered over a wide area it is difficult to implement collective projects. Farmers have therefore opted to use their fair trade bonus in an social and educations fund. Consequently, in addition to defined and fair product prices Gourmet Gardens pays 10 % as Fair Trade Premium into a social and education fund from which farmers and workers can draw e.g. during times when school fees for their children are due. In 2017 a total of nearly EUR 30,000 was paid into the fund.
