Fair Trade Certified* is an award-winning sustainable sourcing model that improves the livelihoods of farming families through fair prices, direct trade and community development.

With Frontier's partner in Kerala, India, our Fair Trade Certified turmeric can be traced to the small-holder farmer. Frontier's projects with these farmers actually expand beyond just the certification with a number of projects that help farmers manage their crops through ongoing climate change, including past funding of a soil, plant and water testing lab, investing in an organic agriculture training program focused on building the soil and biodiversity, and promoting local varieties of turmeric that are hardier against flood and drought conditions.
