Responsible farming

Our partner plantations are certified Deforestation-Free by internationally recognized forest certification programs, PEFC and FSC, minimizing environmental impact and ensuring fair pay and benefits for the workers. With our Equitable Ag, PEFC profit-sharing program, we are the first company to share profits with the smallholders.
