Fairtrade Germany

Fair and climate-neutral

Support beekeeping projects worldwide

A speciality in our assortment is Breitsamer Faires Frühstück. These honeys do not come from Europe, but come from small apiaries in South and Central America. The production according to Fairtrade standards, visible for the consumer through the Fairtrade seal, makes the difference here. For us, as a family business, this is a convincing argument to offer a honey from Latin America in our product range. According to the Fairtrade standards, the beekeepers receive a fixed minimum price for their honeys, long-term purchase contracts and opportunities for co-determination in the cooperative.

Honey as a source of income

Honey is an artisanal product and beekeeping offers people – even without land ownership – a source of income that secures their livelihood. In addition, beekeeping also offers good opportunities as a sideline, e.g. for coffee farmers, to secure income and, if necessary, to compensate for crop losses. Not to be neglected are also higher harvests of cultivated products such as coffee due to the pollination performance of bees. All this has led us to convert the honeys previously known as beekeepers’ gold to Fairtrade quality.

Wir sehen es als unsere Aufgabe Imkerprojekte weltweit zu unterstützen und diese kontinuierlich auszubauen. Eine faire und nachhaltige Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Natur ist für uns eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Nur wenn alle Beteiligten fair miteinander umgehen, ist eine nachhaltige Ressourcennutzung möglich. www.fairtrade-deutschland.de
