Capitol Trading Company

Fairer Handel (Soziales)

Capitol Trading Company is a family-run cocoa trading business in Sierra Leone. Following the civil that ended in 2002, the company played a major role in reviving the cocoa sector and is now listed as one of the top 3 cocoa exporters in the country. At the moment, Capitol Trading exports UTZ-certified cocoa, exclusively to the Netherlands. The company sources its cocoa from almost 9,000 small-scale farmers, and all of them are “organic by default”, as they don’t use any synthetic input. Capitol Trading provides technical assistance and training to the farmers on more efficient and sustainable agricultural practices, and also provides them with harvesting equipment.

KEY INDICATORS as of 31 December 2015:
- number of farmers: 9,000 (UTZ-certified)
- number of hectares: 18,000 hectares of sustainably
cultivated land
- number of metric tonnes: 2,400

Fairer Handel

Kleinbauern in den Entwicklungsländern erhalten im Welthandel normalerweise für ihre Arbeit nicht den Ertrag, den sie verdienen. Daher finanzieren wir Fair Trade Läden und stellen auf diese Weise sicher, daß die Bauern und deren Familie gerecht für ihre Produkte bezahlt werden.
