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.
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!
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 magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
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.
