Fair Trade

Taste of Tonga was founded on strong Fair Trade practices.The Tongan farmers receive:

  • Immediate cash payment and a guaranteed market for their produce.
  • Transport of their produce from their plantations to the production plant.
  • Equipment support if required.
  • Assistance from our local liaison officer.
  • Guidance to ensure the maintenance of organic practices.

Our objective is to provide more capacity and a market for disadvantaged producers in Tonga so as to combat poverty, strengthen their position and have more control over their future.

Support our Tongan Farmers

As with most Pacific Islanders, our growers can feed themselves from their gardens, fishing and pig production however without a reliable source of cash income they struggle to pay for non traditional expenses like electricity and school fees. When you purchase Taste of Tonga products you are supporting Tongan farmers.
