What the members have agreed on
The founding members of PANAO have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which they agreed on the basic principles of their partnership and a shared roadmap.
The founding members of PANAO
In its launch phase, the Partnership for Sustainable Orange Juice (PANAO) is financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Founding members are Beckers Bester, Kaufland, REWE Group (corporations), Christliche Initiative Romero, Fairtrade Deutschland/TransFair, TIE (civil society) and ver.di (trade union). The secretariat is organised within Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
The partnership serves to pool know-how, expertise and resources, is based on constructive dialogue, and works to raise awareness within the market. PANAO members undertake to support the partnership at all levels. Cooperation and communication between the stakeholder groups in Germany and Brazil is key to the initiative’s success. In addition to structures in Germany PANAO is therefore establishing structures in Brazil, as well as communicating with relevant stakeholders at the EU level.
