Since 2012, with the support of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), we have been able to process the ripe fruit directly on site. This was a milestone for our goal to process only tree-ripened organic papayas for Caricol®.
But behind Caricol® is also the intention to help and support people to be satisfied and happy. This is not limited to the consumers of the product. The fair treatment of everyone involved in the entire manufacturing process is part of the Buddhist-influenced philosophy from which Caricol® was built.
Our aspiration is that everyone – whether inventor, farmer, processor, bottler, or sales staff – should be fairly compensated for their work. The papaya farmers in Sri Lanka, for example, receive prices that are above the usual market value. This also ensures a better quality of life for their families.
