Rainforest Alliance-Mexico launches Markets for a Sustainable Future initiative

Rainforest Alliance-Mexico has launched its Markets for a Sustainable Future initiative to link actors of the private and public sector, producers and producer groups, civil society organisations, and consumers to move forward in their sustainability journeys. The launch included an exhibition and conference event where sustainable agriculture, forestry products, and diverse agriculture trends and themes were presented to producers, companies, public and private sector partners, and donors. “Producers are facing big climate change challenges that affect coffee and cocoa productivity and ecosystems,” says Edgar González Godoy, Director of Rainforest Alliance-Mexico. “Rural development can only be realised when we directly link responsible  producers and markets, trading quality products that contribute to improve economic, social and environment conditions.” Rainforest Alliance-Mexico says the Markets for a Sustainable Future event was possible thanks to the support of USAID, SAFE Platform, Hivos, Walmart Mexico, Tinker Foundation, TUI Foundation, Kellogg Foundation, Fundación Gigante, Toks Restaurant and LulaChef. Partners that showcased their products in the event included the State Coordinator of Coffee Producers from Oaxaca, Organic Producers from Tacaná, Chiapas, forestry producers of the Mayan Forest Alliance, the United Sustainable Producers from Mexico City, and the East Zone Agriculture and Livestock Producers.
