Social Products offers organic food products from Philippine cooperative smallholder farmer partners that empower rural farmers, women, and indigenous peoples with a more sustainable way to eradicate poverty. We partner with farmers of organic heirloom rice, wild Cavendish highland bananas, and Trinitario cacao in North Cotabato and Davao, Mindanao in the southern Philippines where the farmers own the land they plant and harvest. Products are sustainably grown with organic and biodynamic farming in lush lands with volcanic soil and even rainfall year-round, providing an ideal agri-tropical climate and terroir.
We connect farmers with conscious foodies who want healthy, tasty, and superior quality products that are ethically sourced. Asides from buying at an above fair trade price from the farmers, we also give back 5% of our profits for social projects such as technical training to convert more farmers to go organic.
Our mission is to provide a sustainable way to eradicate farmer poverty in the Philippines through market access with values-aligned wholesale buyers and conscious consumers.
EIGHTH WONDER HEIRLOOM RICE
We also feature Eighth Wonder heirloom rice from smallholder indigenous farmers in the Rice Terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Eighth Wonder is a social enterprise that operates in more than 18 communities in Northern Luzon, supporting indigenous cultures and sustainable agriculture; as well as including the rice farmers as full economic partners.
