Joining forces to make a change
Farmers and food workers involved in global supply chains are key to tackling major challenges such as poverty and climate change, yet their voices often remain unheard. Together with Solidaridad, TrustAfrica and Business Watch Indonesia, we started the 5-year programme RECLAIM Sustainability!, implemented in strategic partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The programme fosters truly inclusive value chains that can lead to a sustainable transition.
RECLAIM Sustainability! is active in 17 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America, and in multiple commodities, including cocoa, coffee and tea. Fairfood serves as the innovation lead, and is implementing our platform Trace to realise traceability and transparency in coffee and cocoa chains originating in Honduras, Sierra Leone and Uganda. The programme approaches inclusiveness through different solutions aimed at the sustainable use of natural resources, decent work, sustainable consumption and fair value distribution, the latter being the focus of Fairfood’s pilots.
