Some of the things we’ve seen since our Fair Trade certification include an increase in our membership, access to environmental workshops, and the distribution of school supplies for our members’ children. Regular technical workshops allow members to gain the knowledge and skills they need to improve production and quality. This motivates us to keep moving forward and to maintain our certification. ”
