FAIR TRADE

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. With Fairtrade you as the consumer have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.

“In the spirits industry, the trend toward environmental sustainability and social responsibility is just beginning. We’re excited by this partnership and the ripple effect that it’s poised to create.” – Paul Rice, President & CEO of Fair Trade USA.

Our sugar mill was one of the earliest adopters of Fair Trade in the early 2000’s and we have been distilling organic AND Fair Trade certified alcohol since then.

ARROYOS Y ESTEROS

“Our mil and distillery is one of the largest employers in the Arroyos y Esteros community and we take great pride in being not only a long time employer in the area, but in providing decent living wages, a humane work environment and fair employment practices”

Arroyos y Esteros means “Streams and Swamps” in English. This area of Paraguay is known for is lush vegetation and as a wonderful area to cultivate many crops because of the tremendously abundant water supply. For this reason, our sugar mill was constructed in this region over 25 years ago. Though it is only 65 km from the capital city of Asuncion, this area historically has been very impoverished. Most of our employees live in this area and we are extremely proud to have contributed to the betterment of the community. We support not only our workers and their families by providing decent wages and benefits, but also through supporting the local community, school, clinic and much more.

As an early adopter of Fair Trade, we have personally witnessed the transformations it has lead to by allowing the growers cooperatives to reinvest in their community and to decide how those investments are made.
