Fair Trade Fruit
Our fair trade sultanas and raisins come from the Orange River region of South Africa. The area is isolated and dry, as it is near the Kalahari Desert. Many crops are unprofitable, but farmers can get a decent income from growing grapes and drying them. The problem for small farmers is that it takes three years before the first crop and they need training and financial help to get started.
"The premium through Traidcraft is still definitely making a difference. With this new equipment we have bought, we are helping a lot of people - those that have vines and also those that don't". Albie Adams from the Eksteenskuil Farmers Association.
SAD Vine Fruit (PTY) Ltd is helping these farmers to overcome their problems and market their products. Traidcraft's sales of raisins and sultanas mean one group of farmers has the chance of a better future.
