Empowering Our Workforce To Build Their Communities

There are a lot of questions and confusion about Fair Trade practices: what that means, how the premiums are used and if they really help the workers. At Wholesum Harvest, we’ve witnessed firsthand the communities our workers have created for themselves;


With just five years of Fair Trade premiums, our communities have:

  • Built a family park
  • Bought school buses
  • Built a nonprofit grocery store
  • Built a tortilla factory
  • Built laundry facilities, with an attendant
  • Built a soccer field that is used every day
  • Created 13 non-farm jobs
  • Created specialty health care and orthodontic vouchers
  • Given out zero-interest home loans and zero-interest land loans
  • Made sure elementary school kids have breakfast and lunch
  • Donated to the Red Cross to help hurricane victims
  • Built a community center




100% of Fair Trade premiums benefit our employees.


We pay the fees, provide staff to support the Fair Trade program and help the committee however we can. That is our responsibility in the fair sourcing food chain. The Fair Trade premium is how we ask that you also source fairly.
