Sun Planet Organic is the first company in Central Asia that exported organic prunes to the European Union and one of the few who exports wild & organic walnuts. The raw material comes from a farmers’ cooperative with a high level of social responsibility. Together with their European client they managed to develop a trade project that makes European clients aware of the unique origin of the product – Kyrgyzstan.
In 2018, they reached over 1,000 family members for the prune cooperative organised in more than 50 farmers’ cooperative groups collecting walnuts from the unique wild walnut forest Arslanbob. Sun Planet works closely with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, introducing international experience in order to build effective cooperative models and supply chains.
