As a sustainable fruit and vegetable ingredients supplier, adopting greener processes across our business is only the beginning. Sharing the knowledge we have is also crucial, to inform future generations and ensure that the entire supply chain benefits from environmentally responsible ways of working.
Our annual farmer training sessions are a great tool for us to share sustainable best practices and ensure greener crop production from the very beginning. It’s through knowledge sharing like this that we can embark on new sustainability projects with our partners – exploring initiatives from biological control plants to biodegradable mulching paper.
We also developed, together with a valued customer, a leadership training programme. Run by Emerging Leaders, an NGO that specialises in leadership development – particularly in vulnerable communities across the globe – the training aimed to equip the team at Frutas Esther, one of our partner farming cooperatives, with the tools to maintain an effective and cohesive community where everyone feels valued and appreciated.
