Challenge

Without this certification, they miss out the chance to demonstrate that their honey is produced using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices; this is problematic as modern consumers increasingly seek products that are aligned with their concerns about the planet. Also, organic certification acts as a mechanism to ensure fair trade; without it, producers are forced to sell their honey at a lower price to local traders, leading to a lack of recovery of the money invested.

Solution

El Buen Socio works closely with small producers who want to promote sustainable community development; our work aims to support them in fulfilling all the requirements for certification. With our support, the organizations strengthen their projects while positively impacting their communities. With your support, we will encourage producers to have greater bargaining power; therefore, they can command higher prices due to the value and ethical standards of the organic certification.

Long-Term Impact

As these producers access the organic market, they can command better prices for their honey. This economic upturn translates into better livelihoods for families and communities. Furthermore, by focusing on natural alternatives, small producers contribute to preserving their local ecosystems. The organic certification can catalyze economic empowerment, environmental stewardship, and the sustainable growth of honey producers in Mexico, fostering stronger and more resilient communities.
