FruitFriends Laos is a Social Enterprise based in Vang Vieng, Laos
Introduction
                 
    

FruitFriends is a social enterprise working with agricultural products. Profits are used to establish community-based project in the direction of education. Our main focus are children, teenagers and young adults. We focus mainly towards youngsters because Education is the most important key in the fight against poverty.

Currently we are still in start phase but we would like concentrate ourselves on processing different (mostly) fruit products for the market, but also other farm products are welcome. One of our goals is to do this on a sustainable way only using organically grown products.

We will use our own grown products but would like to buy as much products as possible from local farmers. We would like to create a win-win situation. By buying directly from local farmers we skip a step in the supply chain. This provides us the opportunity to pay the local farmers an honest price but also gives us the opportunity to stay competitive on the market in order to be able to compete on the market and gain profits to initiate more community-based projects.

Buying our products will provides an extra income for local farmers but also will provide FruitFriends’ the opportunity to establish more projects.

FruitFriends also provides immersion through volunteering or internship placements
