WE ARE CHANGING THE RULES

Like us, you probably want more equity, more sustainability, and more quality at affordable prices. That’s why we have teamed up with gebana to change the rules of the game: they trade differently, you buy differently. This is how we all make it work:

gebana only harvest and deliver fruit when it is ripe.  The taste is what counts above all; meaningless standards such as size and colour are of no concern.

gebana sell in large packages that come directly from the country of origin. This is more efficient, reducing not only waste but also food miles. You, the customer, buy in larger quantities. By receiving large packages directly from the producers you are helping to reduce the carbon footprint of your purchase, with shorter transport routes, lower emissions and less packaging. And you can always share the contents of bulk packages with friends and family.

We continue to strive to keep getting better at doing business socially and ecologically and change global trade in favour or farming families, local economies and the environment – it doesn’t stop at organic and fair trade!  We help small scale organic farmers from the South to sell their produce in Western Europe.

No preservatives, no wastage, and incredible taste – you won’t look back!

About gebana: Global Farmers' Market is a new partnership with gebana to supply organic produce direct from farmers in poor countries. gebana was founded in Switzerland in 1998 with the aim of linking social and ecological values to economic sustainability. They established supply chains and partner companies were formed in Brazil, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Turkey, Togo and Benin to make it easier for them to link to local farmers.

They enable small scale organic farmers from the South to sell their produce in Western Europe. It hasn’t been an easy ride and one of the ways that has made gebana distinctive has been its willingness to take risks. gebana has high standards for social justice and sustainability. It works with external accreditation but recognises that whilst clear and strict standards are important, their implementation is often laborious, bureaucratic and expensive. They have developed their own organic and fairtrade standards whilst recognising the needs and disadvantages of small-scale farmers. Until now gebana has only operated in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Most of their organic farmers produce more than they can sell so we are very excited to become a distributor. They share many of this Shop's core aims, fostering sustainable development across the world whilst protecting the environment for future generations.

Their produce is organically farmed and then shipped via land or sea to limit carbon emissions.
