Fair Trade & Organic
Fair Trade and Organic are different certifications, but fundamentally, they are similar – both have ethical purposes.
Fair Trade, sets standards and is an assurance for fair treatment of farmers and/or agricultural workers making sure they receive fair & proper wages. Organic ensures that the farming methods and the use of natural resources meet proper standards. It basically makes sure that the ingredients are produced without the use of chemicals, pesticides, or other artificial agents.
Here at Raw ByRoque, we are striving to be 100% organic and fair trade certified. Two of our main ingredients are certified Fair Trade Organic, with majority of our ingredients being Organic. It is our goal that as our business grows, we would be able to obtain these certifications ourselves.
