Ambitions

The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.

2. End hunger

All of our farms are GlobalGAP certified. Some farms in Peru, Colombia and Dominican Republic are also organic certified. Since 2009 we execute a programme aiming to improve productivity and sustainability of our producers.

6. Clean water and sanitation

“We conducted a water footprint study of our farms in Ecuador and Peru. This helps us make even better use of scarce water resources.”

8. Decent work and economic growth

In producing countries: regarding all goods we handle, we have objectively determined that the rights and interests of producers and employees are convincingly guaranteed. There is no place for discrimination and harassment within AgroFair. We strive for diversity in our work force. We promote the personal development of our employees, including training and coaching. We monitor the balance between work and private life.

12. Responsible consumption and production

We strive to ensure that our products are manufactured under the highest possible standards of ecological responsibility. It is important for us to reduce pesticide and fertilizer use and minimise water and energy waste. Our goal is to be a leader in ecologically sound production. Projects have started to recycle plastic waste, to reduce water consumption and to apply milder plant protection agents.

13. Climate action

We strive to minimise the carbon footprint of our company.
