The difference in... Colombia

A special cooperation between Coop supermarkets and Frutas Comerciales, our Colombian grower, has resulted in a project that aims to improve the living conditions of Colombian berry pickers and packagers. Last year we donated €0.25 for each box of physalis sold at Coop supermarkets. Together, we managed to collect €15,000. We used these proceeds during 2017 to train 209 Colombian men and women to become more aware of their rights, and what to do when they fall victim to violence.
