We purchase fair trade & organic tea and spices.
Raw cost of produce provides instant support to farming families.
Additional premiums on products through fair trade and organic prices are received by the FTAK cooperative - a centralized hub.
The cooperative distributes funds as subsidized loans to certain groups of rural farmers to access goods and infrastructure for organic farming.
Premiums also fund further initiatives like soil testing and organic manure units.
Once farmers/ groups have paid back the initial subsidized loans, it’s then given to another group of farmers in a fully sustainable cycle.
