Agroforestry and ecosystems balance: development of community agroforestry projects, balancing agriculture production and ecosystems preservation, for better product quality, and resilience of the productive ecosystem. Community-led projects with full empowerment of farmers and communities, multiple benefits for the production, the ecosystem, families and society.

Carbon neutrality: assess the carbon footprint of each product or activity, from farm to fork, neutralize this carbon footprint through agroforestry / reforestation projects developed within the supply chains of the given product (insetting).

Fairtrade certification according to FLO standard (minimum purchasing price, fairtrade premium on commodity price, collective projects), additional proprietary tools to measure “fairness” beyond certification (FTA200, etc.)
