Sustainable Trade and Inputs
We believe that farmers are often trapped between a consolidated global agro-chemical inputs chain and a consolidated global commodity distribution chain. How to overcome this? We are working on two different paths:
Short Circuits lead to a higher price. Looking for niche markets and opportunities helps the farmer to get a better value for their work, but are hard to reach for a small individual producer. At Agrofloresta, we link farmers to manufacturers and consumers with fewer steps.
Sustainable Inputs are required to break the big agrochemical chain. In Agrofloresta we improve soil microbiology with the help of the rainforest microbiome, we manage pest and diseases with harmless organic approved methods and we improve soil fertility through solid and liquid composts made with local residues.
