Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade melon exclusively from Uzbekistan, enabling us to guarantee our high quality standards.
Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After harvesting, the melons are cleaned, the skin removed and the seeds removed from the pulp. The melons are then cut into pieces and shock frozen so that their appearance and shape is retained.
