A week from today, to be exact, on Friday 27th April, 2012, I received a long-awaited email from FLO-Cert in Germany, that my company has now been given “Permission to Trade”, as the first Small Gold Licensee to be certified by FLO-Cert.
This is what my company has been working towards since I first learned about the certification possibility (ultimo 2010) and since I in 2009 started working with the ecologically mined gold from Oro Verde, mined in compliance with fair-trade principles.
Transparency in the Supplier’s Line from Mine to Consumer
For the customer it is a guarantee that transparency in the supplier’s line is unbroken and that fair-trade principles are fulfilled.
No jewellery pieces to show as yet, but soon to follow.
Read about the work of the Alliance of Responsible Mining to secure safe and fair working conditions for small scale miners around the world.
