Projects & Partnerships
Since then, we have continuously worked on various projects. Out of conviction and with partners who share our values and goals. We are all about promoting organic agriculture, opening perspectives for farmers and producing high quality organic raw materials. Technical support, know-how transfer and partnerships with promoters lead to fair prices and greater independence for farmers.
With the help of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation, we have set up three projects with private and public funds. In each case, the goal was to certify smallholder farmland for organic agriculture and establish competitive production:
2012 – 2014: Physalis in Peru
with our co-project partner mymuesli, we launched a public-private partnership project (PPP) in Peru. With our project partner Agroandino, we certified organic land for small farmers and built up a state of the art production faciltity. Today, Agroandino is one of the leading suppliers of dried organic physalis in Peru.
2016 – 2018: COCONUT BLOSSOM SUGAR IN INDONESIA.
The goal was to train farmers in organic farming and to certify their cultivation areas, as well as to establish a technically mature production for organic coconut sugar. Today, with our partner PMA, we are one of the leading BRC certified production companies and exporters of high quality coconut sugar in Indonesia with over 1,500 small farmers as suppliers. PMA regularly supports new cooperatives in setting up structures and selling their organic coconut sugar.
2019 – 2021: DATES IN PAKISTAN
Another PPP was about processing Pakistani organic dates in a small manufactory. During the project, it then turned out that it was almost more important to teach the farmers know-how on how to improve their sandy soils without fertilizers. With the support of the University of Faisalabad, we trained the farmers to prepare worm compost. As a result, the soil stores more CO2, the plants are strengthened, and yields increase. Since then, this knowledge has been passed on in regular training courses.
Organic cashews from Vietnam and Burkina Faso
We have been working with trusted producers for many years to bring the best cashews to market. We are all about strategic partnerships for the benefit of all stakeholders in the value chain.
In Vietnam, our partner is deeply involved in the region, far beyond the cultivation of cashews. Our partner plays a pioneering role in sustainable production methods, environmental and climate protection. Social standards and association goods are also being implemented.
In Burkina Faso, we have been working closely with our partner for many years and are closely accompanying its development into a professional manufacturer by providing advice and support.
Organic hazelnuts from Azerbaijan and Turkey
The hazelnut comes originally from Anatolia and is there the symbol of happiness and fertility. For the ancient Romans, the organic nuts were a sign of peace.
Today we source our hazelnuts from Turkey and Azerbaijan. Our managing director Marko Buljan has made a name for himself over the years in the organic industry as a proven nut expert by establishing and maintaining long-standing supplier relationships.
Quality hazelnuts at a fair price – that’s what you get with us!
Organic almonds from Spain and Uzbekistan
Here, too, the relationship with our suppliers is characterized by many years of trustful cooperation.
In addition to top quality almonds, please contact us for other almond products such as pastes.
Organic raisins from Turkey and Uzbekistan
We obtain raisins and raisins from suppliers in Turkey and Azerbaijan, whose production sites and growing areas we visit regularly. For years we have maintained a close and trusting relationship with our local partners.
Every harvest brings new challenges due to the climate. We have developed processes and structures with our suppliers to ensure the best quality.
Organic coconut sugar from Indonesia
Since 2018, we have been working hand in hand with our Indonesian partner in coconut sugar with more than three different cooperatives. For generations, the farmers have been harvesting the coconut palms in the same way (see video/ link). This traditional method gives the whole family a livelihood, but also involves certain risks that need to be known. We support the project with technical support, know-how transfer and financing.
Together with our partner, who collects, processes and exports the sugar after harvesting, we have built a modern facility from which we export coconut sugar of the highest organic quality. Regular audits and investments in technology and infrastructure make us today one of the leading BRC certified production facilities in Indonesia with more than 1,500 smallholders as suppliers.
