Delicious, sweet and succulent dried tropical fruit from the Philippines that will make your mouth water! 100 gm packs of mango, papaya, guava and pineapple pieces, ideal for snacks or for use in cooking. Available individually, or buy the pack of four (one of each) and save 10%.
Traditionally farmed by small scale farmers and marketed by PREDA, a human rights and fair trade organisation that assists small-scale fruit farmers to improve production, encouraging them to grow their fruit traditionally without using chemical inducers and genetically modified seed sources.
Filipino fruit farmers have traditionally been exploited by middlemen such as local contractors, financiers and fruit buyers. PREDA also ensures the fruit growers and sugar producers receive a fairer, higher income than they otherwise would. This income helps ensure they can feed their families and educate their kids, and allows their communities to invest in health and education - giving them hope for brighter futures.
Imported via our friends Trade Aid in New Zealand.
The PREDA Foundation works with disadvantaged children, farmers and craftspeople in the Philippines.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.
The New Internationalist magazine has won the Paul Hoffman Prize, awarded for NI's outstanding contribution to world development.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
