Impact, special achievements & commitmentsEN / FR

A 100% organic company since its creation in 1987, ProNatura's mission is to support and unite many organic producers in France and around the world. It has progressively and naturally focused on CSR and responsible sourcing: within its very diversified sectors, it promotes and develops local channels, cooperation, equity, and human values. In 2005, ProNatura created ProNatura West Africa (PNWA) in southwest Togo. Fair trade certified in 2006 for pineapple, PNWA then diversifies its fair trade products (ginger, turmeric, papaya, avocado). In total, nearly 422 producers are involved in the project, grouped into very dynamic unions. Thanks to the Fair Trade Development Fund, various projects, decided collectively at the level of each union, have been financed (literacy, food production techniques, diversification of activities, purchase of equipment, etc.). ProNatura is also involved in other Fair for Life supply-chains: the avocado of Peru, the mango of Senegal and the fresh Mazafati date of Iran.

Entreprise 100% bio depuis sa création en 1987, ProNatura s’est donnée pour mission d’accompagner et fédérer de nombreux producteurs bio en France et dans le monde. Elle s’est progressivement et naturellement orientée vers la RSE et les approvisionnements responsables : au sein de ses filières, très diversifiées, elle favorise et développe les circuits locaux, la coopération, l’équité, et les valeurs humaines. En 2005, ProNatura créé la société ProNatura West Africa (PNWA), dans le Sud-Ouest du Togo. Labellisée commerce équitable dès 2006 pour l’ananas, PNWA diversifie par la suite ses productions équitables (gingembre, curcuma, papaye, avocat). Au total, près de 422 producteurs sont impliqués dans le projet, regroupés en unions très dynamiques. Grâce au fonds de développement équitable, différents projets, décidés collectivement au niveau de chaque union, ont pu être financés (alphabétisation, techniques de productions vivrières, diversification des activités, achat de matériel, etc.). ProNatura est également engagée dans d’autres filières équitables Fair for Life : l’avocat du Pérou , la mangue du Sénégal et la datte fraîche Mazafati d’Iran.
