Should we stop eating avocados? No, it can be done differently. Sustainable avocado production methods are possible and sometimes even generating a positive impact.
Green Gold is the name of FAF’s avocado report. The production has boomed over the past decade. The increase has been an engine of economic growth and a source of income for millions of smallholder farmers around the world. The more than ever popular stone fruit is unfortunately often linked to poor environmental and social conditions surrounding the production practices.
That is why the Fairtrade Access Fund (FAF) has partnered with companies in both Latin America and Africa that produce avocados in a sustainable way. These companies succeed, while improving the living conditions of smallholder farmers, in reducing environmental harm, and sometimes even going further by having a positive impact on the environment. How is that possible? You can read all about it in the report: Avocado Report.
