FiBL project

Title Residue-free pulses from India
Title Original Rückstandsfreie Hülsenfrüchte aus Indien
FiBL project number 65169
Abstract

Reismühle Brunnen Nutrex imports rice and pulses from Utarakand in India. The products are produced by ca. 4000 smallholders organized in 3 cooperatives. The products are handled and exported by the Indian partner Nature Bio-Foods. The project has been supported by Helvetas in organic and Fairtrade certification since 2011.

In the past years, despite intense cooperation and support, recurrent cases of contamination with bromide, phosphine, heavy metals and pesticides have occurred. These contaminations jeopardize the sustainability of the supply chain.

In the frame of the project an evaluation of the integral supply chain shall be carried out and improvement measures will be proposed and implemented.
