Creating Sustainable Supply Chains, Organic Farms and Livelihoods for Ethiopian Smallholders
Partnership Organic Farming
In cooperation with GreenPath Food, we bring Ethiopian organic farmers into the global supply chain. At the centre of production is their expertise in their land, climate and community. In turn, we provide expertise in:
- Organic growing
- Sustainable farm management
- Delivering to the world’s most demanding markets
Technical and strategic support
Greenpath recruits cohorts of farmers whom we are confident will thrive in working with us.
Farmers receive seedlings, organic inputs, agronomic advice and purchase agreements that translate in carefully planned harvests every week. Furthermore, we cool, sort, pack and ship to our customers across the world.
Holistic and sustainable organic production
Greenpath supports and teach farmers to grow in a way that moves beyond the EU-organic requirements.
We achieve this by prioritising planting fruit trees and perennials, for both their agronomic benefits and their long-term contribution to farmers’ livelihoods. Our planting is driven by permaculture principles, with a focus on intercropping, low-input growing and improving soil health.
As in the words of Joan Clark from tipsbulletin.com, we are creating beautiful edible landscapes with a purpose. Here you can find a guide to create your at home.
Beyond buying organic produce
- Excellent quality products, that supplement local growing
- Consistent deliveries to regular schedule
- Visibility on a cross-continental supply chain down to the field level
- The opportunity to support Ethiopian farming families by buying as directly as possible
- Knowledge that you are extending good agricultural practice and organic growing around the world
