Education Partnerships and Supply Chain Qualifications in Cambodia

Establishment of Education Partnerships and Qualification of Supply Chains in the Cambodian Agriculture Sector

About This Project

In Cambodia, agriculture plays a prominent role in the everyday livelihoods of more than 56% of the total working-age population. Yet, most families in rural remote areas do not have access to qualified education.

In scope of the project, Pierre Fabre and Baca Villa will jointly tackle the farmers’ education in organic farming and cultivation of plants and herbs for vegetable  oil manufacturing. The experts will train technical staff in the oil pressing process to convert  plants and herbs into high-value  oil, which may later be used for nutraceutical and cosmetic applications in Pierre Fabre’s products. Additionally, 100 farmers and technical staff will be trained in organic farming, food safety as well as income management, health and safety. Aim of the project is to certify at least 50 farmers in the Ecocert Organic Standard. In cooperation with  local university, a quality control laboratory will be established to foster research and practical education of students.

Through  the set-up of an external control lab and the support of Pierre Fabre in technical experts trainings, Baca Villa will be able to ensure that vegetable oils provided to Pierre Fabre and other international and local customers, meet the highest quality standards.
