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.
... we just love supporting the great work you guys do ...
Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.
A little about Baladarshan: Baladarshan is a Fair Trade Organisation marketing the products of Chennai slum women working through the SPEED foundation.
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.
