Fair Trade Fruit
Grapes are one of the few crops that earn money for farmers in the Orange River area of South Africa, near the Kalahari Desert. Small-scale farmers, who can get the money to invest in vines and learn the skill, can begin to earn after three years.
Traidcraft buys raisins from SAD, a company that sells on behalf of farmers with large holdings as well as those with only a few acres. To ensure that the benefit from our trade reaches the most needy farmers we charge a premium, which goes to the Eksteenskuil Farmers Association.
Fair Trade Honey
"Apicoop gives us a permanent market for our products and this helps us develop. Before we kept bees we had no jobs and now we have been able to develop ourselves as people."
Celia Gonzales is one of the 14 women beekeepers who belong to Apicoop, along with 106 men. She is also on the co-op's board. The Apicoop members are all in the area east of Valdivia, but some 500 beekeepers in other parts of the country also benefit from Apicoop's fair trade export sales.
