10% OF TOTAL PROFIT GENERATED FROM THE STORE WILL BE INVESTED TO SUPPORT FARMERS
Expanding Sustainable & Regenerative Agriculture
While supporting existing crops, Biophilia will provide associated farmers the resources to develop new initiatives of sustainable farming. Regenerative agriculture as well as a responsible land and water management, are critical to developing a sustainable food system and the key to mitigate the effects of global warming and climate change.
Empowering Rural Communities
Biophilia fosters food sovereignty and will support farmers in the development of new products that represent their culture, history and traditions. The implementation of this policy allows several rural communities to shift from commodities to products with value added, improving local economies through diversification, developing local markets and connecting farmers and consumers in a valuable way.
Natural Disaster Relief
Global warming is increasing the frequency and severity of natural disasters. Floods, tornadoes, droughts and severe storms have a dramatic impact on farmers’ crops, lands and lives. Biophilia will help farmers rebuild and recover from natural disaster by restoring crops and repairing damages for farming facilities.
For small and medium-scale farmers, the process to obtain fair trade and organic certifications can be a substantial financial burden, and are often out of reach. Biophilia will contribute to help farmers gain these certifications, broaden their business potential, while fostering quality and transparency.
