    Making avocado and pineapple supply chains more sustainable and resilient 2021
    Concerned about business risk in avocado or pineapple supply chains? FAO can help. Global production and trade of tropical fruits have grown dramatically. Tropical fruits are a part of healthy diets for millions of people and contribute to rural and economic development in producer countries. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns about sustainability (economic, environmental, and social) have shown business risks that must be addressed to ensure continued success in these value chains. Thus, FAO is leading the project “Building responsible global value chains for the sustainable production and trade of tropical fruits”. This flyer introduces the project to the private sector, including companies, producer organizations, trade associations, and industry initiatives. It summarizes how the project will help companies operating in avocado and pineapple supply chains to make their operations more sustainable and resilient. This includes strengthen or establish risk-based due diligence systems; providing a confidential environment for peer learning on pre-competitive issues; developing a series of demand-driven guides on technical challenges; and identifying opportunities to accelerate sustainable investment in these supply chains.

    Gap analysis to support due diligence in the avocado and pineapple sectors 2023
    Also available in:

    The FAO-led project "Building responsible global value chains for the sustainable production and trade of tropical fruits" (GCP/GLO/022/GER) (the Responsible Fruit Project) supports industry actors in the avocado and pineapple sectors in developing risk-based due diligence systems to help them become more sustainable and resilient to shocks, such as climate-related events, pest outbreaks and economic recessions. Due diligence helps companies to avoid activities along their entire value chains that have negative impacts on the environment and on people’s livelihoods and well-being. In many countries, newly passed or proposed laws require companies to carry out due diligence to identify, assess, mitigate, prevent and account for how they address adverse impacts of their activities and those of their suppliers and business partners. Companies in the tropical fruit sector often use voluntary sustainability standards to manage risks and to comply with requirements of international markets. The usefulness of such standards in supporting due diligence partly depends on how aligned they are with international expectations and regulations. This gap analysis guide help companies to make an initial analysis of this alignment.

    How do avocado and pineapple businesses shape the fate of Sustainable Development Goals?
    Technical brief, no. 7
    2023
    Also available in:

    Businesses in the global production and export of avocados and pineapples can play an important role in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The tropical fruit sector not only contributes to employment and export revenues but also provides nutritious food. However, if not properly managed, social, environmental and economic risks associated with tropical fruits value chains can have detrimental effects and impede progress towards achieving the SDGs. A proactive approach is necessary to identify and avoid these challenges, ensuring that the avocado and pineapple sectors continue to make positive contributions to the SDGs. By doing so, they can align their growth with sustainable development. Contributing to fulfilling the SDGs also help businesses mitigate risks, strengthen access to markets with high sustainability requirements, and improve relationships with consumers, workers, governments and other stakeholders.
