A Fair Trade for Vanilla
Danisco introduces a full line of Fair Trade Certified Vanilla products in conjunction with TransFair USA, the only independent, third-party certifier of Fair Trade Certified products in the U.S. Fair Trade ensures farmers in the developing world use sustainable farming practices and receive a fair price for their crops. This guarantees environmental stewardship while protecting small-scale farmers from the volatile price fluctuations that have forced many out of business. It also ensures a consistent supply of ingredients to customers. Danisco is able to offer Fair Trade Certified conventional and organic Vanilla while still providing its customers with a competitive price. This will aid companies requiring a reliable source of Fair Trade organic Vanilla that can supply the right quality and quantity for expanding product lines and increased sales. Danisco has worked directly with the growers and processors in several vanilla-growing regions in the world on sustainable production. Danisco extracts vanilla mainly in the United States, with additional facilities in the United Kingdom and France.
