Rapunzel has been processing and trading organically produced raw materials since 1974. Since the year 1998, Rapunzel has also been trading organic raw materials from around the world. Since the beginning of our trade relations with producers from the global south (so-called developing countries) we have put our emphasis on both the select quality of organic products and on the quality of the cooperation with our producers.
It is our fundamental belief that economic sustainability needs social sustainability – these two go "Hand in Hand". Our HAND IN HAND program therefore combines the fair trade idea with organic agriculture.
We are proud that more than 150 Rapunzel products carry the HAND IN HAND label.
