Direct and long-term links with producer’s cooperatives
ETHIQUABLE has seven agronomists who work permanently in the field to provide development advice to organisations.
They often work in partnership with other support bodies such as Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (AVSF, a non-governmental organisation) [ch1] or with local structures to empower the producers’ cooperatives.
ETHIQUABLE also provides technical, logistical, and financial support to help cooperatives create their own infrastructure.
ETHIQUABLE works exclusively [ch1] with small-scale farming systems that use low-intensity, sustainable farming practices.
This leads to:
- high-quality products with an authentic taste
- natural, distinctive flavours
- promoting traditional skills and the varieties of local terroirs.
The cooperative model: another way of working together!
We have chosen a company model that fits us perfectly[ch1] : the cooperative.
The employees are shareholders of the company and therefore actively take part in the company’s strategic decisions.
Our principle for decision making is ‘one man, one vote’.
Our company is based on participative management and democracy.
Affordable prices for organic and fair trade products
In order to offer consumers affordable prices, we guarantee equal distribution between all those involved in the value chain.
ETHIQUABLE is committed to transparency and reasonable margins, and asks all its distributors to do the same for consumer prices.
Added value for the cooperatives of small producers
ETHIQUABLE helps the cooperatives of small producers to transform as much as possible their raw materials. This is an ideal way for the cooperatives of producers to ensure empowerment and development.
High quality and gourmet products
As we usually say: "the pleasure of tasting ETHIQUABLE products is threefold: good for my well-being, good for the small producers and good for the Earth."
