Focus on Farmers – Kwadwo Addo

Welcome to the First Annual National Palm Done Right Month! This month we continue to celebrate the farmer, brand, and retail partners that make this initiative possible. It is with their deep commitment to sustainable agriculture, ingredients, and products that we forge on in our mission to making Palm Done Right and to better serving our planet.

Ghanaian Organic Palm Farmer Kwadwo Addo

Kwadwo grows organic and fair trade oil palm in Ntronang, Ghana, and sells his fruit to Serendipalm, Dr. Bronner’s sister company in Ghana’s Eastern Region. He is happy with his switch to growing organic and fair trade oil palms: “We do not use chemical sprays that require protective clothing. We do not use chemical fertilizers. I have a steady source of income. Money comes back from the palm oil I sell to develop my community.”

Why You Should Get Involved
with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
  • Our market, due to palm oil’s versatility and functionality as an ingredient, lifting product quality and performance.

Together, we can influence change for:

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
