Sustainable Production Of Sumatran Cinnamon
Transcript of Sustainable Production Of Sumatran Cinnamon
the community of
to the creation of the foundation called
TRIPPER NATURE sources Cinnamon in its rawest form from the cradle of Indonesia. The living Cinnamon trees color the landscape like a reddish carpet when flowering high up in the hills and mountains of Sumatra. On Mount Kerinci in West Sumatra Cinnamon is everywhere, as far as the eye can see.
Cinnamon products –
Ethical, Sustainable and Fair Trade
However, the future production of Cinnamon is facing several obstacles. Cinnamon is a way for locals to save capital, but it also means to freeze a land… the farmers do not do mix cropping, therefore having to wait for 25 years to get income from their land. The destructive harvest and decreasing interest of the farmers for Cinnamon tree plantations are becoming an issue. Field access and harvesting efforts are becoming difficult as well. According to the locals, only plantations owned by important local suppliers will remain and there is no space for small farmers.
The traditional farming of Cinnamon is at risk of disappearing.
TRIPPER NATURE and our Cinnamon suppliers are implementing the standard NFC (standing for Nature-Future-Culture) and “Fair for Life” program (from IMO) helping local communities to find a new interest in cinnamon.
Yayasan T.E.A will be in charge of Corporate Social Responsibility for TRIPPER as we want to be involved in local community development through a sustainable, fair trading system.
