Private fairtrade program of the company Rapunzel Naturkost GmbH which is a supplier of organic products.
From the very beginning of dealing with producers from the Southern countries (the so-called developing countries) not only the quality of the organic products but also the quality of the cooperation with the producers was important for us.
The primary aim of Rapunzel Naturkost under the HAND IN HAND program is to establish long term trade relationships with its HAND IN HAND suppliers and therefore making them more independent from commodity price fluctuations in the world market and to support them in their eco-social development. We at Rapunzel Naturkost believe that organic farming and fair trade is the base for a positive and sustainable development, because it secures healthy food products, a healthy environment and an adequate added value for the producers. To us at Rapunzel economy and ecology must progress “hand in hand”.
