Bee Pollination Program

As Tradin Organic, we support the sustainable development of local farmers communities in Ethiopia that produce organic certified avocados for our avocado oil factory.

Supporting local farmers

With the help of our strategic partners, we have developed the bee pollination project that focuses on using honeybees to ensure the pollination of organic avocado crops and other organic plants in the area.

Currently, more than 200 local smallholder farmers, 40 % of which are female farmers, are participating in the pilot phase. The farmers were provided with 180 beehives, honey extractors, wax moulds and protective clothing and have been trained on beekeeping practices. This program also creates additional income for  local organic avocado farmers by allowing them to commercialize  organic honey on the local market.
