December kicks off the last in our ‘Liberating Lives’ 2016 season with our feasting theme – a time to get inspired by hearty seasonal produce and the sentiment of the festivities.
Liberation is excited to announce its exclusive partnership with award winning British Fair Trade ethical jeweller, Greg Valerio who has created a fabulous 9 carat Fairtrade gold peanut pendant.
We have heard from our cashew farmer partners IKURU Sarl that the first nuts are off the trees and it looks like it will be a good harvest. Picking has started in the three districts in the region of Southern Nampula where IKURU farmers live and work on their small cashew orchards.
Cashews are the most popular nuts in Europe and the US but the industry has a reputation for exploiting producers and workers. Liberation Foods, a company co-owned by farmers, argues that to be sure of the social and eco ethics of their nuts, retailers must trace the nuts back to their source.
As part of our education series, we’re putting the spotlight on schools in Nicaragua, home of our peanut producer cooperative, Del Campo.
International Literacy Day (ILD) on 8 September shines a spotlight on global literacy needs, which goes hand in hand with the International Literacy Association’s mission to ensure literacy is for everyone, everywhere.
