What is Sindhuka?

Sindhuka is looking for local responsible farmers producing vegetables, fruits and herbal plants’ in a sustainable and environment-friendly way. We promote a series of safe cultivation practices to respond to the effects of climate change, minimizing the use of chemicals fertilizers and pesticides and using only local varieties and eco-types. Our main goal here is to create a network of small-scale farmers in which all together we can better market our products while promoting local food traditions.

Why was the Sindhuka trademark created?

To provide local producers with a unique, recognizable and environment-friendly brand designed to open up new market opportunities and reinforce existing local businesses. Imports of agricultural produce has increased dramatically in the last years from outside our borders, especially since the earthquake in 2015, while local farmers continue to struggle on finding ways to market their own produce. Let’s reverse this tendency and be part of the change!

Our vision for the future? To create a strong trademark recognized at national and even international level.
