IDEAS BECOME ACTION
DOESN’T JUST TALK ABOUT FAIR AND SOCIAL - ME IS VERIFIED FAIR AND SOCIAL!
Unlike many of our competitors who create their own ‘Fair Trade’ logos and talk about social responsibility while they are just informing consumers with marketing slogans, at ME, we believe that our customers deserve respect and transparency.
We are an open book; our farm is open to interested people to come and check the authenticity of our affirmations and products. Our farm is managed according to rigorous environmental, social and economic criteria designed to conserve wildlife; safeguard soils and waterways; protect workers, their families and local communities; and increase livelihoods in order to achieve true, long-term sustainability.
Plus, we are proud to be certified by internationally approved organizations, such as Rainforest Alliance, which continuously monitor onsite to ensure that strict basic principles of social behavior, engagement, compensation, treatment of the environment and environmental compatibility are adhered to.
The Rainforest Alliance is a non-governmental organization working to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior. Products bearing the seal originate on or contain ingredients sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms or forests.
Having earned this seal implies that we are taking steps to :
• Increase tree cover
• Conserve soil quality and prevent erosion
• Protect wildlife
• Ensure the well-being of workers and their families by facilitating access to education and healthcare
Your choice to use ME products benefits the future of our people working on the farm, their families within the Msambweni community, the soil, trees and its wildlife.
