De eerste ondernemer die meedoet met de veertiende editie van Crowd Force is Arjan Verschoor van Forestwise. Forestwise is hard aan de weg aan het timmeren om een deforestation free movement te creëren. Dit doen ze door producten uit het regenwoud te commercialiseren zonder daarbij het regenwoud aan te tasten.
It has been a while (three years to be eaxct) since the last large illipe nut season. We work directly with the illipe nut collectors and have contracted over 500 farmers in 20 villages, all accross the province of West Kalimantan. One harvest provides one family the equivalent of 5 months income, in just one month time.
Forestwise has just received an organic certification by Ecocert for a part of our Illipe butter supply. This means from now on we are able to supply organic illipe butter. We are also in the final stages process of getting the rest of our supply of illipe butter certified according to the Fair For Life standard. Next to illipe butter we also offer Kemiri (candlenut or kukui) oil, Virgin coconut oil & Arenga rainforest sugar. These products can be certified as well, on request.
