Rapunzel is committed to the continuous development of organic agriculture - both regionally in Germany as well as in Europe and worldwide. As early as 1990, Rapunzel initiated a farming project that produced the first organic coconuts worldwide. Rapunzel's oldest and biggest cultivation project is located in Turkey. The roots of this project reach back into the mid 1970s. An example how a vision turned into reality.
The fair trade program is complemented by a binding yearly HAND IN HAND donation made by Rapunzel. Since 1998, it allows us to support ecological and social projects worldwide.
Out of the HAND IN HAND program, Rapunzel developed its HAND IN HAND donation. From 1998 to 2021 Rapunzel supported with the HAND IN HAND fund, realized jointly with Environmental Action Germany (Deutsche Umwelthilfe), eco-social projects in the Global South. Since 2022, the HAND IN HAND donation is granted through the RAPUNZEL One World Organic Foundation towards ecological and social projects worldwide.
