Social responsibility for a sustainable corporate success.
By partnering with the children’s rights organisation Plan International we support the project “Allin Mikuna – feeding children healthy” in Peru.
Many children suffer from malnutrition in Peru. The main cause of food shortages is climate change, as droughts and cold spells become more frequent and the population lacks knowledge in this area.
With the help of the project, the nutrition of small children in the region is to be improved, environmentally friendly business models developed and women economically strengthened.
Training for families on healthy nutrition and organic farming
Support for the cultivation of food
Entrepreneurial training and support for the development of micro-enterprises
Educational opportunities for school children on nutrition and environmental issues and gender justice
In total, 600 families with children under five years of age, 1800 school children and 300 training participants for the development of micro-enterprises will benefit from the project activities.
Project regions: Province of Paucartambo, Region of Cusco

Plan International is an international children’s rights organisation that works for the opportunities and rights of children worldwide. Plan International is active in over 70 countries, regardless of religion or politics. For 80 years Plan has been working to ensure that girls and boys can live a life free from poverty, violence and injustice – actively involving children in shaping the future.
Our worldwide partners receive fair prices for their raw materials, regardless of world market prices.
In this way, they can operate independently, largely secure their livelihoods, especially in developing countries, and lead lives that meet minimum social standards in the areas of health and education.
Raw materials from small farmers
We purchase our organic raw materials mainly from small farmers in India and Africa.
Human instead of machine
We are creating new jobs by dispensing with machine production.
Raw material company in India
In India we have had our own raw materials company for many years, managed by D.K. Gupta, which guarantees fair working conditions and ensures that the raw materials are extracted without child labour.
High-quality organic raw materials
Consumers thus receive particularly high-quality organic raw materials with valuable ingredients.
