SouthernPartners & Fair Trade Center,Inc. is a Fair Trade Social Enterprise and have been engaging in Processed Food Manufacturing and Trading for 19 years. With our Fair Trade work, we have been supporting several Grassroots Community Organizations and Small producers in Cebu, Central Visayas, and Southern Philippines. A number of grassroots partners need support in their efforts to build sustainable livelihood.
Our aim is to support their empowerment efforts, capacitate our Grassroots community partners, increase their Incomes and build Sustainable Livelihood.
Our Fair Trade Work supports 42 small producer organizations of grassroots organizations of farmers, 15 Fair Trade Villages, 9 community organizations of women, and 30 seasonal/contractual food handlers/ at our processing plant apart from our 25 core staff of SPFTC who have been working in the different fields of work for 19 years.
Twelve (12) of our Farmers are able to produce dessicated coconut and we in SPFTC sourced these to make Virgin Coconut Oil. Our Women partners in Yolanda affected communities can produce Moringa and Turmeric Flakes and SPFTC consolidates and processes these into Moringa & Turmeric Powder.
However, a number of our fair trade villages need support for their Community Building, production subsidy for organic farming, & technical assistance related to energy & utilities. For our Community Partners in Kinatarcan & San Remigio affected by Yolanda, and the other fair trade villages in Aloguinsan & Sibonga, they will need support for alternative energy to be able to sustain their village processing for coconut &herbs.
We are also seeking support for Organic Certification for our fair trade value chain to be competitive in the market.
We are invite Development Oriented Organizations kind hearted Individuals to support what we do in Fair Trade and BECOME AGENTS FOR CHANGE.
We reach out for your Helping Hand and Be An Agent for Change.
