Cocoa, Coffee and Bananas
Aldi is working with its suppliers to increase the number of products that come from independently certified forest products such as bananas, cocoa, coffee and tea. To do this we use schemes such as the Rainforest Alliance, UTZ and Fairtrade.
· The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour
· Fairtrade works with businesses, community groups and individuals to improve the trading position of producer organisations and to deliver sustainable livelihoods for farmers, workers and their communities
· UTZ offers a market-orientated approach to sustainable farming worldwide, by improving farm management and good agricultural practices
