Del Campo is a farmer-owned co-operative that exports agricultural products to the world market. Small-scale farmers often grow sesame as a cash crop, but face economic and technical barriers to improve their returns. The high quality sesame contained within our Tahini is grown by small-scale farmers on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast.
Del Campo represents 3500 small and medium sized Nicaraguan farmers who grow more than 1500 tons of sesame seed annually, and are the largest exporter of sesame in Nicaragua. They export fairly traded products where transparent benefits to small farmers are guaranteed.
“We want a better world, a more just society, where we can share in a more just way. We want a market where we can consume a product that’s really fair – fair for the producer and consumer.”
Juan Bravo Reyes, Del Campo
