Sustainable trade (Social)

Anatrans was founded in 2009 and is currently the biggest cashew processor in Burkina Faso. Anatrans is located in Bobo Dioulasso, the ‘agricultural capital’ of Burkina Faso, which is known for its good agricultural soil and climatologic conditions. The company is the leading cashew processor in Burkina and one of the very few African cashew processors with fair-trade and organic certification and the ACA Seal (the Africa Cashew Alliance sustainability seal).

Anatrans and several of its farmer groups are certified fair-trade. In 2013, the company has been certified organic, as was one of the farmer groups.

Trade finance from Triodos Sustainable Trade Fund enables Anatrans to pay the farmers upon delivery of their produce.

KEY INDICATORS as of 31 December 2015:
- number of farmers: 432
- number of hectares: 1,952 hectares of sustainably

Sustainable trade

Smallholder farmers in developing countries do not necessarily reap the rewards of a complex international trade system. So, by financing fair trade enterprises we aim to make sure that individuals and their families are paid fairly for their products.
