fruit farm trips.
in 2012 started an ambitious program to send all our staff to gain first-hand experience of working on fruit farms in developing countries. we wanted to learn as much as possible about the first step of our supply chain but also to find out what impact these fruit farms have on their local community.
since our first trip in 2012 have we travelled 24 times to different farms in malawi, ethiopia, peru, ecuador, guatemala, india and thailand. what we see and learn from our trips are incredible. stories of how fruit farms make such a positive impact on people's lives. we have seen up close how these farms benefit their communities, whether it’s providing schools for the children of the farm workers, a water pipe to bring clean water to the village or clinics for basic health care.
and all of this is funded by the sale of mangoes, or bananas or coconuts to europe and elsewhere. we have visited farms all over the world, but always come back overwhelmed by the love of fruit and the amazing benefits and impact that the fruit farms have on the development of these rural areas.
we have made many friends in these communities and we are proud to play our part in the chain.
fruit farm ambassadors.
that’s what we call our employees, consumers, customers and friends that have come with us to fruit farms during the years. we bring our ambassadors to fruit farms in developing countries to see the change and impact for themselves. click on the video to find out more about life on a fruit farm.
