Fair Trade Certified™

Fair Trade Certified™ another step forward in sustainability

As part of our growing commitment to worker health, education and safety, we’ve begun an exciting new journey with Fair Trade USA. We have successfully met the rigorous Fair Trade standards, and are proud to now offer Fair Trade Certified peppers.

Together, we are exploring how additional income and community development premiums earned through Fair Trade might benefit the families and home communities of the 120 temporary and full-time agriculture workers in our employ.

Community Development Premiums

Community Development Premiums

With every Fair Trade sale, our greenhouse workers earn Community Development Premiums. These funds, which are specifically designated for social, economic and environmental development projects go into a separate bank account and are managed by a group of democratically-elected representatives called the Fair Trade Committee.

This committee, made up entirely of Greenhouse workers, examines the most pressing needs of thier communities, and votes on how to best use the premiums to improve each community’s day-to-day life.Purchasing Fair Trade Certified™ climate friendly SunSelect produce improves lives, and protects the environment.
