Looking after the world we live in
Here at Cobell we understand the importance of protecting our natural resources, maintaining the environment we live in and providing products with ethical provenance.
As a member of the Soil Association we are able to demonstrate that we supply ingredients from sources with a demonstrable commitment to sustainable agriculture in harmony with one of our greatest natural resources.
Plus, Cobell is registered with the Fairtrade Foundation for the production and sale of Fairtrade-certified ingredients, allowing us to offer our customers a range of fruit products with ethical integrity.
Featured processing partner of the month: Chiquita
Cobell is proud to be the UK agent for Chiquita who since 1992, have been helping to lead the transformation of the banana industry, one farm at a time.
It's only natural that we operate responsibly in the communities where we live and work. That's why all Chiquita banana farms are Rainforest Alliance Certified, meaning they meet the rigorous standards of the Sustainable Agriculture Network, a coalition of environmental groups in eight tropical nations.
The Rainforest Alliance is an international, non-profit, environmental organization. Its mission is to protect ecosystems and the people and wildlife that depend on them. Since voluntarily joining the Rainforest Alliance's Better Banana Project 20 years ago, 100% of Chiquita's banana plantations have been modified to conserve wildlife habitats and natural resources, manage agrichemicals responsibly and promote worker welfare and community well-being.
