S’porean man selling ethically-produced mangoes from Cambodia at Geylang Serai bazaar stall
The Cambodian mango farmers will not lose part of their profits to middlemen.
Amongst the colourful stalls at the 2019 Geylang Serai bazaar, there’s one particular shop that sells all things mangoes.
Besides fresh mangoes, there’s also mango juice and mango ice-cream.
Here it is.
While you’d most certainly run into a few shops selling fruity refreshments, this isn’t your usual commercialised fruit stall.
Rather, it’s a small business run by Singaporean Nicholas Goh, who is the CEO of TwinAgri, a company based in Cambodia.
TwinAgri works with the local farmers, helping them earn their livelihoods through waste management and making use of sustainable, eco-friendly technology for farming and producing organic products.
Helping farmers sustain their livelihood
Goh hopes to “change mindset and culture” while bringing to customers “the real farm to table experience” and to farmers “a greater [profit] margin” without having to go through middlemen.
With his business in Singapore, he is making a call to support the farmers, and create a market for these farmers, giving them a stable income and livelihood.
Furthermore, the mangoes are grown naturally and the amount of plastic packaging used is minimised.
If you would like to support Goh and his farmers, you can find his stall at G277.
The mangoes retail at a promotional price of S$25 per box, with approximately 10 to 13 mangoes per box.
Alternatively, you may wish to contact Goh for delivery via 86221229.
