Covilli’s Produce is NOW 100% Organic Fair Trade!

It’s official! We are absolutely thrilled to announce that COVILLI’S FARM IS NOW 100% ORGANIC FAIR TRADE!

In a nutshell:  this certification ensures that Covilli’s farm workers have safe working conditions, access to healthcare and education for workers’ children, regulated working hours, as well as rest and sick days. Fair Trade certification also verifies sustainable farming practices.

Buying ANY of Covilli’s Fair Trade products is an easy way to support the hard-working people who grow the products that you love. A few extra cents – the Fair Trade Premium – will allow for democratically chosen projects to become a reality in Covilli’s farm worker communities; whether it’s a bus for the High School students, dental services or a multipurpose room, this benefit will bring empowerment through decision making: “What is best for all of us?” and “How can we achieve it?”
