What is Empowerment? Our Principal’s Visit to Fair Trade USA in Colombia
by Ana Zacapa
We often hear the term empowerment, but wonder what it really actually means. When I recently visited Skoll Awardee Fair Trade USA in northern Colombia, I saw it firsthand.
LONGMONT, Colo., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Madhava Natural Sweeteners, the company that first introduced agave to the U.S. market a decade ago, announced its Raw Organic Agave Nectar is now Fair Trade Certified(TM).
We’re celebrating another Whole Trade Haitian mango season here at Whole Foods Market. These juicy tropical treats will be in most of our stores for a few more weeks, so there’s still time to grab some if you’ve missed them so far. A small group of us returned to Haiti this April to visit with our partners on the ground and to plan the coming season. We were amazed at the progress that has been made in the past year and wanted to share the news with you.
