Vrindavan holiday pack, with information about Shop for Change on the box

Shop for Change Fair Trade is proud to announce the launch of several new certified products, in partnership with our friends from Vrindavan.  Just in time for Diwali, Vrindavan has put together a holiday gift pack with the very first Shop for Change Fair Trade certified mango, cashews, and amla.  The farmers who grew the produce for the fair trade products are members of the Vasundhara Agri Horti Producer Company Ltd (VAPCOL).

This is a groundbreaking effort and Shop for Change is thrilled help make fair trade certified fruit and nuts available to the Indian market.  With the expansion into food products, we’re broadening opportunities for you to get a great product and support better livelihoods for farmers.
