Why Native Vanilla is Driving Fair Trade

With Fair trade, you have the power to change people’s lives. By making simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal.  This leads to direct benefit to societies, environment and economy.  And that means a better life.  A life allowing farmers to make their own decisions and control their future.  One that bring schools to children, medical aid posts communities and helps with every day basic requirements like clean water.

Our community projects are built on sustainable development

The farmers that Native Vanilla support are micro-farmers, based in small villages far from the city.

Regular challenges these farmers face is: 

  • High costs to transport their product to city 
  • Cooperatives buying at low market prices
  • Lack of sustainable farming education
  • Not understanding best practices for high quality vanilla production
  • Little business savvy
  • Fluctuations in global market pricing

Get involved with Native Vanilla to make a difference.

OUR PACKAGING

We use 100% biodegradable/recycled/recyclable labels & packaging.

We care about our planet and know that each sustainable packaging choice we make matters!
The use of packaging has massively increase over recent years, resulting in an increased requirement for raw recycled material resources to be used for packaging. This has added additional pressure on consumers to manage packaging as it becomes waste. At Native Vanilla, we strive for Eco-friendly packaging while still ensuring packaging fulfills critical functions such as product safety, clear product identity and shelf presence, protection against tampering and important legal and useful information.
