In Part 2 of this 2-part webinar series (see highlights from the first webinar here), SHP Director Ann Armbrecht will speak with producers from India, Guatemala, Namibia, Nepal, and Zimbabwe. It isn’t often that producers from different regions of the world can speak with each other about their experiences and we are thrilled to be joined by Elisa Aragon, Gero Diekmann, Khilendra Gurung, Shamiso Mungwashu, and Nihal Singh for this conversation.

Each of these individuals and companies is leading the way in implementing Fair for Life, FairWild, UEBT, organic, and Regenerative Organic Certifications in their networks for producers. We will talk about the value these certifications bring to their companies and communities and the challenges they encounter in meeting these requirements. Most importantly, we will talk about innovative solutions and potential areas of collaboration among companies working to address social and environmental issues in the communities from which they source.
