Organic Fairtrade cherries & almonds come from Uzbekistan. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and Fairtrade products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After harvesting, the cherries are washed, pitted and then gently dried using solar energy.
After being carefully harvested, the almonds are pitted and the actual kernels placed in water so that they can start to germinate. Germination and blanching are carried out in one step. Finally the blanched almonds are gently sun-dried. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
