Agriculture & Food Processing


Agriculture & Food Processing

At Fair Trade Lebanon, we are committed to making a difference in Lebanon’s agricultural landscape. We proudly collaborate with farmers, workers, and communities across the country, addressing four key areas

Farm and Agriculture Development

One of our main goals is to strengthen local agriculture and improve the livelihoods of farmers and workers in Lebanon. We are dedicated to enhancing local production, reducing rural exodus, and creating job opportunities for youth and farm workers. We do so by promoting sustainable agriculture techniques to improve product quality and increase food availability in every region. 

Food Processing

For over 15 years, we have been supporting cooperatives and SMEs in the food processing sector. Our work in this sector aims to uphold Fair Trade principles and improve the lives of locals through capacity building programs and certification training. Local producers learn to create COOPs, develop flagship products, and enhance their technical and soft skills through our programs.

Food Security

One of Fair Trade Lebanon’s primary missions is to support food security in our work. We focus on community-level self-sufficiency and household-level food supply enhancement. We do so by increasing local food production, facilitating access to agricultural inputs, and implementing sustainable agricultural practices. Additionally, we support individual households’ access to nutritious food through programs like Lebanese Food Basket which provides healthy snacks for schools and promotes gardening activities at home.

Capacity Building (Training and Technical Assistance)
Our expert team of agricultural engineers offer training and technical assistance to small producers across Lebanon. With a special focus on sustainable farming practices, livestock management, animal health, and product development, we equip farmers with the skills and knowledge needed for success. From agroecology techniques to dairy production and food processing, we empower farmers to grow their businesses and prosper.
