About Organic White Rum FairTrade,
Papagayo is an uncompromising rum, crafted from the finest ingredients with the highest standards for environmental sustainability and social responsibility in mind. Papagayo is a single-estate product, distilled from organic cane grown on a single plantation in the Arroyo y Esteros region of Paraguay, located about 60 miles north of the capital, Asuncion. This cooperatively-run plantation began with the dual goal of farming in a sustainable, organic manner, and at the same time promoting fair labour practices that would raise the standard of living dramatically for the farmers involved. Today some 800 families participate in this project, and Papagayo is both Certificated Organic by the USDA and Fairtrade Certified by the International Fairtrade Association.
