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.

I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
