APROMALPI - Asociación Productores de Mango del Alto Piura
Global Gap Certification and Implementation
APROMALPI is using Fair Trade premiums to invest in achieving quality certification, which will add value to their product and enable the producers to receive a higher price for their harvest. APROMALPI members are focused on reaching GLOBAL G.A.P. certification, a certification that requires high investments to comply with their standards, designed to reassure consumers their food is produced with minimal environmental impacts. The certification also ensures each farmer's health and safety is held as one of the organization's top priorities.
New Ophthalmology Services
Fair Trade standards require each cooperative to provide essential health care services to each of their members. In the general assembly, APROMALPI members voted to provide ophthalmology services for its members and community. As many of APROMALPI's members are over 60, it is important these individuals have access to health care.
Training and Team Building
APROMALPI has been able to hold capacity building programs with the help of their Fair Trade premiums. Members have benefited from trainings on leadership, team motivation and business organization. With these programs members are able to better manage their own organization and play a hands on role in the overall structure and development of their organization.
