FairPalm is revolutionary – it has turned a controversial ingredient into
a life-changing one.
You might have heard of the palm oil problem.
It’s that hidden ingredient in so many food and beauty products that is destroying rainforests – killing animals and raising carbon dioxide levels. You might know that palm oil farming is hugely destructive to the environment and wrapped up in exploitation and land grabs.
Well we know about that too – and that’s why we created FairPalm.
FairPalm is different.
Where most palm oil is mass produced, Fairpalm is grown by smallholder farmers. Where most palm oil comes from artificial plantations in the Far East, FairPalm comes from West Africa – where oil palm plants grow naturally.
Smallholder farmers, working for Serendipalm cooperative in Ghana, are encouraged to grow oil palm plants alongside other crops. Food security and biodiversity are kept high priority so you can be sure that FairPalm is sustainably grown. Farmers also get a fair price for their produce – justly rewarded for all their hard work.
It’s thanks to the great work of Serendipalm that we can confidently say that FairPalm is the antidote to your palm oil problems.
Kwaku has been a farmer for 39 years and has always been on this land. He enjoys the life as a farmer because it allows him to earn money to provide for his family. He plans to keep saving so that he can pay for his children’s education so that they can look after him when he retires.
“The [fair trade] premium we receive [from the sale of FairPalm] goes into our communities’ developments such as nurses and midwives housing, toilets, footbridges etc. I want to mobilise farmers so that they can think of ideas like building a community centre, a computer centre and a library.”
