The Philippines is one of the countries most affected by climate change. This has serious consequences for the large number of small farmers. Several typhoons each year can sometimes cause already small harvests to fail completely. In the center of the poor province of Camarines Norte the LPMPC cooperative is tackling these problems. LPMPC’s focus is on growing and processing pineapples. They process pineapples to make juice or jam, and make clothes from the fibers. Processing the fibers secures them extra income. What’s more, the pineapple is more resistant to typhoons compared to the usual rice paddies. In short, an innovative approach that bears golden fruit.
PURPOSEThe purpose of this project is to make LPMPC a sustainable cooperative that helps more than 9000 people (2017) with improved production and access to fair markets.
