It is important for our business to address social and environmental issues while producing amazing products and improving the livelihoods of others. Fair trade provides a transparent model of doing business that guarantees ethical and sustainable agricultural practices, creating shared value for all.
We constantly act on feedback from stakeholders and look for ways to make improvements. It is our philosophy to be an engine for change. In an effort to fulfill our commitments, we utilize progressive fair trade certifications and third party verification. In fact, we are the first company in the world to offer Fair for Life cinnamon.
In addition to Fair for Life Social & Fair Trade certification, we have our own internal standard NFC, that supports internationally recognized fair trade criteria.
Our goal is to expand our offering of quality fair trade products and enhance the lives of our growers, customers and employees.
With value systems aligned to ours, Fair for Life- Social & Fair Trade was an easy choice for our natural and organic spice operation. Monitored by the IMO in partnership with ECO Cert, FFL builds upon frameworks established by the globally recognized International Labour Organization (ILO).
The standard has two components. The social aspect, For Life, specifically concerns social responsibility and decent working conditions. TRIPPER has selected both social and fair trade components to accredit their business regarding the production of cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla.
Fair for Life is unique because it ensures the entire supply chain has adhered to its standards- from sourcing raw materials, to production and export. Companies are able to develop programs for scenarios in which no standard of regulation existed before. The net of opportunity is widened by these tactics and marginalized groups have greater access to the fair trade market
TRIPPERs proximity to processing facilities and origin of raw materials, gives them the ability to practice in direct alignment with FFL benchmarks. TRIPPER has undiluted knowledge of market intelligence and can make adjustments rapidly.
By choosing TRIPPER and the Fair for Life standard, companies commit to products that consistently perform better in their various applications, lead to more vibrant communities, and the preservation of our environment.
