Afghanistan has for close to 40 years suffered from war and conflict with hundreds of thousands of people killed and millions of refugees. The fighting has had a devastating impact on the Afghan society with high insecurity, widespread poverty, and continuous lack of basic social services in large parts of the society.
Of the total population of around 35 million, more than one third live in extreme poverty and more than 6 million depend on humanitarian assistance.
The Afghan people are extremely resilient but strongly need trade, jobs and income.
Afghanistan produces some of the worlds finest traditional nuts and dried fruit.
warfair is working with Ziba Foods and the International Trade Center to bring the products on the Danish market. Ziba Foods is an artisanal nut and dried fruit company that provides health conscious consumers with delicious nutrient-dense, sustainably grown and socially responsible food sources.
Working directly with small-scale farms and cooperatives, Ziba sources only the highest quality agricultural products, many grown wild without active cultivation. Combining traditional hand sorting with modern food safety standards, Ziba works to restore Afghanistan to its position as a world-renowned provider of nuts and dried fruit.
