Formed in Zimbabwe in 1990, Kitchen Garden Organics acts as a link between third world Organic Producers and buyers in Europe. Their aim is to offer quality organic products direct from the growers at a Fair price to both producers and the buying public. Goods are bought from producers as finished products, not just commodities- providing income for local jar, bag, box, and label manufacturers, and generating employment in the packing factory as well as improving the skills base, in an economy which badly needs both. The producer follows guidelines laid down by European Fair Trade organisations, and is dedicated to the goals of organic production under favourable working conditions offering meaningful employment. Policies include worker participation in management decisions, above average salaries, equal pay for men & women, protective clothing, housing if required on the farms, a pension scheme and in-house training. The company gives employment priority to the post-school leaver population, resident on the farm, so that the family unit is maintained. If further labour is required it is recruited from nearby communities instead of using migrant labour.
