Amanda Galliano is Business Development Manager for Liberation Foods, the UK's only Fairtrade farmer-owned nut company. Their vision is a world in which small-holder nut producers earn a decent, secure income and can plan for the future. For this reason, they buy their nuts from the co-operatives of smallscale growers and farmers, who own a 44 percent share of the company. Liberation brings together peanut farmers from Malawi and Nicaragua, cashew farmers from India and El Salvador, and Brazil nut gatherers from the Amazon rainforest. Producers are also shareholders, united in their goal and actively involved in the whole supply chain.
