MEET THE FAIRTRADE FARMERS

More than 1.6 million farmers and workers are part of Fairtrade system in 75 different countries. Here are just few of the people who produce the food we love to eat.

Meet José

Fairtrade banana producer José has been part of the Banelino cooperative in the Dominican Republic since it began in 1996. They've invested some of their Fairtrade Premium in local healthcare services that reach more than 10,000 patients every year in 20 rural communities.

"The mobile health centers can reach people in the community who cannot travel. Every day we thank Banelino for giving us a hand."

Meet Rose

Rose is a coffee farmer and board member of the Gikanda Farmers Cooperative Society in Kenya. Thanks to training delivered by Fairtrade, Gikanda’s coffee sales have been increasing every year. They've used the Fairtrade Premium to renovate the local primary school, buy books for the secondary school and invest in a local health center.

"Before the training I used to pick 500 coffee beans per bush, now I pick 1000-1500. Fairtrade has trained our farmers to improve the environment. We will go very far together with Fairtrade."

Meet Felice

Felice grows cocoa in Côte d’Ivoire. He's part of the Kapatchiva cooperative made up of 567 members in five communities, which all benefit from the Fairtrade Premium.

"I planted two hectares [about 5 acres] of cocoa plants to increase my income and enable my four children to go to school and have better opportunities in life. We still need a truck to get the cocoa from our fields. At the moment I carry all the cocoa on my head after the harvest."

Meet Harniti

Coffee producer Harniti is a member of the Koptan Gayo Megah Berseri cooperative in Indonesia. Fairtrade certified since 2012, the cooperative uses their Fairtrade Premium to train farmers to produce more coffee cherries and improve their quality. They also invest in grass trimmers, safety boots and coffee seedlings for each member.

“I’d like to see more people buy our coffee so that I can earn more money to send my children to university.”
