Sustainability project



Context Founded by an approach economically viable of the vanilla beans production at the same time in terms of resources and environment, our Sustainability project aims to support the producers in the Sambava area in their fundamental needs so that they can be devoted entirely to the vanilla cultivation with a respectful of traditional know-how and thus guarantor of the quality to which one owes its reputation.

Accordingly TRIMETA AGRO FOOD and its importer – flavor manufacturer PROVA, working at the sides of the growers association AVABE (Association Vanille Ambatojoby-Bemanevika ), whose members come from four villages close to the Bemanevika city, engage in a social program. Financed by PROVA, with the structural support of TRIMETA FOOD AGRO, it concentrates on the following shutters:

  • Education: our objective is to improve the classrooms in order to encourage the children to go to the school and to enable them to profit from a school course of quality.
  • Nutrition: we wish to support nutritional diversity by drawing up cultivation projects conceived for a beneficial food mode balanced for health. Health: we want to bring to the villagers the access to the basic health care in their own villages, without having to go in remote hospitals.
  • Environment: we aim to preserve the ecosystem and to fight against the slash-and-burn-cultivation practices of the rice, which is a source of deforestation.
  • Community projects will be also undertaken, for example the improvement of the water supply system by the construction and the restoration of the wells in each village.

On their side, the growers association AVABE begins to respect a Code of Agricultural Practices with an aim of ensuring the vanilla production and curing in accordance with the professional standards (Organic and Fairtrade standards).
