Refresh your summer with Fair Trade citrus!
Add some zest to your life with refreshing and delicious Fair Trade oranges or clementines! As of July, Seald Sweet International of Florida will be selling Fair Trade Certified citrus grown by the South African-based Mouton Citrus Pty. Ltd. Though only officially labeled as a Fair Trade company in 2007, Mouton has been working under a producer-empowerment business model since 2002. The corporation’s farmers own about 11% of the company. Money is funneled directly into the Mouton’s farming community through housing, education, and healthcare investments. This partnership between Seald and Mouton will become part of the biggest Fair Trade citrus-selling movement in the United States, to date.
