products tea, coffee, handicrafts, spices. In Binh Phuoc and Phuoc Hung
cooperative cashews, Tien Hung commune (Dong Xoai) have also been labeled an

THE WAY THE WORLD
Not coincidentally the cashew
farmers cooperative Phuoc Hung known fair trade certified internationally. This
is supported by the project "Poverty reduction through development
assistance overall small business" - prized (Netherlands), was deployed
Provincial Farmers Association for staple crops in 2007.
To be fair trade certified,
growers what to do? Dam Xuan Tho, Deputy General Director of Binh Phuoc that
co-operative unions, who heads the technical process, said: Fair Trade is a
partnership between producers and consumers on the basis of dialogue and transparency
. Fair Trade certification is an international certification. Enterprises
achieve this certification will have more product sales channels, expand
product markets, exports through fair trade system.
Want to achieve certification
must meet the standards that the organization of fair trade brands (Fair Trade)
set. Process of care requires the following requirements: First, the human
factor. Implementers must complete volunteer training courses, covering an area
from 0.5 to 10 hectares under cultivation. Second, the environment must be
guaranteed orchard planting trees or windbreaks; to protect water resources,
wildlife protection, no shell and plant protection drugs. Community engagement
is the third request, which requires all industrial waste is not in the
orchard. Fourth, the employer is not disabled; do not use in pregnant women in
hazardous work or heavy work which must be arranged in other jobs to supplement
income; do not use child labor, violence against children in the family, all
children are children of members must go to school.
After the strict implementation
of the requirements set out, Fair Trade Organizations will appoint inspection
done on the garden steps it through journals and sampling, if reached farmers
will be recognized friendly production environment, sustainable development and
certification in 30 days. Trade justice demands from production to processing
to achieve certain standards. Cooperative Phuoc Hung currently no cashew
processing plant standards should have partnered with a company in Binh Duong
certified international fair trade processing. Tagged with international fair
trade products will go straight into the demanding markets such as USA, EU.
This is what the farmer could not
have imagined when it exported 1kg $ 0.33 enjoy additional welfare funds. This
is money the consumer goods trade fair pay for good products, with clear
origins. The amount of investment benefits are used to reproduce, perform
community work. 2016, the amount of co-operative welfare Phuoc Hung reached
nearly 1 billion while export volume was only 600 tons / 38 household members.
In particular, investment in reproduction (buying fertilizer for the household
member) 250 million, donated 146 gifts on the occasion of the new school year
for students in the province foothold cooperatives, building charity houses for
1 member Pham Thi Vang; remaining operating funds, training, pay the fee for
certification bodies, funds against climate change ...
Charge a fee of certification
organizations 100 million. Every year, the organization will appoint a person
to check the production process, without achieving the certification
discontinued. An inspection of 3-5 days. Households were randomly selected to
take care processes must be synchronized. Dam Xuan Tho He adds, inspections in
2016, has two member households make mistakes but was overcome. These mistakes
usually cover plant protection products, water bottles, shell noodles, leftover
plastic bags in the garden, birds ... And his household Tho confirmed, during
the last residues plant protection products on the members of the household
gardens sampling is absolutely safe.
TOWARDS BRAND ORGANIC
Also Cooperative Phuoc Hung, in
which co-operative unions are cooperatives Binh Phuoc, Dong Nai 3, Thanh Phat
(Bu Dang) and BGM, BGM district. In doing so, they Dong Nai has also been
labeled an international trade fair. According to Mr. Dam Xuan Tho, Binh Phuoc
co-operative unions that are guiding the members of two cooperatives Thanh Phat
BGM and organic cashew production. This is the quickest steps can soon be
recognized Fair Trade Organization fair trade labeling.
The production process of organic
things like what the international fair trade. Just another thing entirely to
use organic manure and no chemical dosing control cashew pest, do not use
genetically modified ingredients. This method of production is considered
superior quality standards in the world today. But also have to say that
organic produce farmers initially encountered some difficulties when yields
decline, costs of care over. However, because being on the road branding should
bring benefits to farmers are not specific. Can only confirm that the market
for products that organic standards are unlimited.
