Hivos is a humanitarian organization that stands for a fair, free and sustainable world. It also stands for equal chances for all people. In the province Kulon Progo, located in central Java, Amanprana also works closely with Fairworld, which ensures that the harvest and production of our coconut blossom sugar is organic and occurs with the fair trade principles.
