Fairtrade tomatoes from Tunisia
In 2011, cultivation firm Agro Care decided it wanted to relocate part of its cultivation to somewhere with a climate more suited to growing tomatoes during the Dutch winter months. The south east of Tunisia was ultimately chosen as the new location. Construction began on the first 2.5-hectare greenhouses, under the brand name Desert Joy, in 2013. Since then, the cultivation area in Tunisia has grown to around 20 hectares and the firm has become the world’s first Fairtrade-certified tomato producer.
Since its inception, Desert Joy has sought to give something back to the local population. That is why the company not only provides jobs that give locals the chance to improve their social and economic well-being, but it also invests in other ways. It provides training opportunities, childcare facilities, and transport to and from work. Moreover, the cultivation company plants trees as a way of giving back to nature.
Our Fairtrade tomatoes from Tunisia are available from week 48.
