July 5, 2010 marked a great moment for the cooperative which received its Fair trade certification, after two years of efforts to make its shea butter respond to the fair trade criteria of the international certification organization, Flo Cert.
The Shea Butter Producers Cooperative of the Siby rural district (COOPROKASI) gathers over 800 producers organized into 21 groups based in the 21 villages that make up the rural district of Siby, Mali. This certification will open new markets for the cooperative which will be able to diversify its activities. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this success!
