As is known, the Ethical Trade Forums took an important step last September to continue the path started in 2015. That step consisted of the launch of the Ethical Trade Forums Association, to which all participants in the initiative during these years have been invited. These include small farmers, cooperatives, exporting companies, foreign importers, and large supermarkets.
With the recent addition of the last three associates: HOYAMAR S.Coop. from Murcia, the German importer Riel Fruchthandel, and the Swiss supermarket Migros, there are now 64 members of the Association to which the 36 sponsors that had driven the initiative so far also gradually join as members of the Association, making us part of the hundred organizations that have committed to promoting the Forums in the long term.
We would like to encourage from here the most regular participants who are not yet part of the Association but share the objectives we have in the Forums to take the step and help us build together a more sustainable, professionalized, and responsible sector.
