The TDC supports Peruvian physalis producers

Probably you have noticed them on supermarket shelves: boxes of bright orange berries crowned by papery sepals. Where do they come from and what is the story behind these ‘lanterns’? The TDC supports a project that helps the Peruvian physalis farmers of San Pablo to get a larger share of the sustainable commodity chain.

Documentary fair trade coffee from Kivu

The Trade for Development Centre commissioned a documentary about fair trade coffee from Kivu for TV5Monde. The documentary is now available, with English subtitles. A camera crew visited three coffee organisations in Kivu: RAEK, Sopacdi and COOPAC. It shows how fair trade coffee can positively impact the living conditions of the local population, even when the circumstances are tough.
