Naturland is one of the major international associations for organic agriculture based in Germany with 70,000 farmers, beekeepers, aquaculturists and fishers in 60 countries throughout the world. Naturland has always been open to rethinking organic concepts and producing impressive new organic innovations. Naturland extended its activities to the production of fish and seafood in aquaculture and is the first in the world to support the conversion of a tea garden into certified organic production.
There are 3,406 smallholder farmers in the Philippines certified according to Naturland standards. Since the 90’s, Naturland has been engaged in the Philippines to create better livelihoods for smallholders. We strive to reconcile the interests of the local farmers by connecting them to society and creating a market for them, which is one of the biggest problems of farmers in the country. We show that organic, social and fair economic activities can thrive through international cooperation.
