Vanadurgi Foundation has realised the importance of Fair -Trade Certification which is designed to allow people to identify products that meet agreed environmental, labour and developmental standards. We are promoting Fair-trade certified Cocoa cultivation mainly as inter crop in Arecanut & Coconut gardens in Shimoga, Davanagere, North Canara districts. Our project includes  building a  high tech Cocoa processing centre at Shimoga with  a capacity of 500 metric tonnes per annum. 

Vanadurgi Foundation is working to form small farmers self help groups. These groups have separate identities and in combined names with Vanadurgi   as registered societies having farmers as members. All such farmer groups have signed MOU with Vanadurgi Flavours & Extracts Pvt. Ltd for marketing their produce. The company is providing funds   for such groups for certification, pre harvest expenses and also inputs for cultivation. The certification under Flocert and Ecocert are under progress.
