SUPPORT FOR PROJECTS:
Apricot and fig paste are produced by several farmers in Rapunzel's Turkey project. The farmers cultivate the fruit with a lot of love, experience and diligence in Eastern Anatolia. The entire processing is done in Eastern Anatolia - from the manual fruit harvest on steep slopes to the drying of the fruit in the sun and the production of the fruit paste all the way to the packaging process.
Our dates are fair-trade dates. Since 2003, Rapunzel sources all dates from our HAND IN HAND partner CCF in Tunisia. The CCF family business specialized many years ago in date cultivation and date processing. CCF produces only organic dates. Local farmers steam and dry the manually harvested dates. At the end of the process, the dates are processed into a fruit paste with a subtle caramel flavor.
