Ethiquable is a cooperative company in which the employees hold the capital. The company, which is a fair trade specialist, defines itself as being close to all citizens, as well as being committed and supportive. All of its products carry the following wording: “What I stand for”, to give a clear idea of its approach to consumers. Since 2003, Ethiquable has pursued a demanding fair trade policy (decent prices, direct and sustainable relationships, support at the local level) which is based exclusively on small-scale farming. It has links with 70 partner small farmer cooperatives in the countries in the South.
Each of its fair trade and organic products comes from a specific terroir and an organisation with which it has identified a development and empowerment project. Seven agronomists provide the farmers with support at the local level to implement these fair trade projects. Its products are sold in 5,000 sales points.
