In 2008, we launched an ambitious project in the tropical Ivory Coast: the adoption of organic cultivation in the country as part of a PPP (Public Private Partnership) programme. Pineapples were the first certified organic products of Ivoire Organics – the regional producer group made up of small farmers with which we work. The German PPP support partner was SEQUA, a non-profit implementing organisation in the German business sector.
