Farmer information: 16 farmers are part of the Biofruit NAPOLI association. These organic farmers work together to share knowledge on organic practices. Each farm employs many women who harvest, sort, and remove leaves on the golden berries.
Fruandes: Our dried fruit comes to us from a Fair Trade organization in Colombia called Fruandes. Fruandes purchases fresh fruit from small-scale farmers and employs women to hand cut, dry and package the fruit.
Direct Fair Trade Premiums: Fruandes provides its workers with a sustainable wage, vocational training, health care and education for their children. Three of the original members of Fruandes remain with the organization and have received microcredit loans that allowed for the down payment on a home outside the refugee life of Cazuca.
Description: A chewy whole fruit snack with a powerful punch of tartness. Golden berries contain carotene and bioflavonoids, along with vitamins A and C.
