For every delicious tomato we sell, a premium is paid into our fund. This fund is managed by the Desert Joy Fairtrade Premium Committee, which is made up of Desert Joy employees specially appointed to ensure a representative cross-section of our organisation. After all, that's only fair! Employees have the freedom to choose, and every vote is equal.
The Committee evaluates ideas, makes proposals, and coordinates projects. with Desert Joy's management merely serving as an advisor. Every project can make the difference. Bit by bit, the projects create a better world for our employees, their families, and the environment they live in. So as well as tasting good, our tomatoes are also doing good!
As a result of the projects:
- Childcare has been set up, allowing more women to go to work.
- Sheep are kept and bred in order to eat our green waste.
- Doctors and dentists regularly visit our employees and their families.
- Employees receive a healthy meal during working hours.
