Our long-term partnership agreements often include investments to help producers develop and expand."I never imagined I would be involved in managing a business but now I am going places I have never been to before. I am very grateful for these new opportunities and to be the appointed spokesman for the co-operative." Nimal

Lanka Kade takes care to ensure our suppliers' employees based out in Sri Lanka get regular training - here is a picture of a recent first aid session. Fair trade means support for everyone involved in the supply chain.

When we started asking our suppliers and their employees about their lives there were some several tragically common themes which emerged. Many had lived through very traumatic times surviving political unrest, civil war and some cases as a result of the 2008 Tsunami. Thankfully for those now working for Lanka Kade, those struggles are now behind them and it is very humbling to hear them telling stories about the positive aspects of their lives today. Here is a picture of a recent staff party organised by one of our suppliers. Ahh we all had such fun that day.

Regular dialogue with staff is essential for any modern business and we are delighted all of our suppliers involved their employees in developing their businesses. "Before forming this co-operative our lives were very dull and routine, but now we are keen, motivated, enthusiastic, inspired." Malika
