We are very happy for the ways Fair Trade is assisting us. We are using premium funds for social and environmental projects that enhance farmers' lives.
I think it is very important Fair Trade certification maintains high expectations and standards. We are honored to be a member of the Fair Trade system and do not take our responsibilities as members lightly. Keeping the standards strong is in the best interest of our farmers in Belize.
We want to ensure that if our farmers' children want to be cane farmers, they can. If they want to go to school, they can. We want to ensure that they do not go to bed hungry at night. This is what we think Fair Trade is doing to benefit the country of Belize.
Fair Trade provides us with great support and tools to remedy our concerns and needs.
