Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThe ASPAG association was founded in 2005 with the objective of processing Brazilian Ginseng (Pfaffia glomerata) from small producers, prioritizing sustainable production, protecting the fauna and flora in the production areas, as burning is not allowed as a management method that before was traditionally used.
The social mission of the project is to maintain the tradition of native ginseng cultivation, strengthen the local community, maintain a strong social organization, affirm the identity of the family farmer.
The agricultural production of certified ginseng is carried out by small family producers associated with ASPAG.
The dry product is processed by ASPAG in the municipality of Querência do Norte/PR, Brazil.
The beneficiaries of fair trade defined were the small associated producers themselves, through improvements in the collective infrastructure of the association.
