The session will show a case-study of the successful long-term partnership between Naturamus GmbH in Germany and Castor Products Company in India.

Having started more than 10 years ago with the first organic castor oil worldwide, the project is now able to create perspectives and livelihoods for more than 800 smallholder farmers in the semi-desert of Gujarat in India.

Through the fair-for-life certification more progress in education, women empowerment and resilience against climate change are being achieved.

Mr. Nanalal Satra, managing director of Castor Products Company and pioneer of organic production in India, will share local activities and project outcomes.
