Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur Announces Fair Trade Certified™ Through October 2025

Washington, D.C. – October 20, 2022 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is pleased to announce that it has been renewed as a “Fair Trade Certified™” product by the Fair Trade USA™ organization, one of the global members of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).  Fair trade products and services represent over 2 million farmers and over 2400 businesses worldwide, providing a path to sustainability and support for the farmers and their families.  The Fair trade certification process assures that brands and businesses are focused on fair incomes, workers’ rights, combating child labor, promoting gender equality, and improving climate resilience.  Fair trade products command better prices and higher loyalty than other products, thereby supporting a fair income and support for families worldwide.  Fair Trade Certified™ is an award-winning, rigorous, and globally recognized sustainable sourcing model that improves livelihoods, protects the environment, and builds resilient, transparent supply chains.

“We are very honored to continue the “Fair Trade Certified” certification by submitting our trade practices and sourcing documents, which allowed us to renew our membership with the Fair Trade USA organization through October 20th, 2025,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur.  “We support the mission of responsible business practices, conscious consumerism, and shared value to eliminate poverty and enable sustainable development for farmers, workers, their families, and their communities around the world.  We are obviously quite proud of our quality story and the craftsmanship that goes into every bottle.”

The Fair Trade USA organization believes that all farmers deserve a fair price for their harvest so that they can stay on the land, keep their kids in school, and farm sustainably.  It envisions a day when all workers enjoy safe working conditions and a living wage.  It also believes that business with purpose – companies that combine people, planet, and profit – will become the norm.  Fair Trade USA envisions a time when it is easy and affordable for all consumers to choose Fair Trade Certified™ products and vote with their dollars for a better world.
