Fair Planet

Fair Planet is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase food security and provide new economic opportunities for the millions stuck in poverty.

The key solution for increasing smallholder farmers’ productivity and income is access to high-quality seed varieties. To realize this, Fair Planet partnered with the world’s leading seed companies and has access to thousands of seed varieties developed worldwide. In Ethiopia, we teamed up with local Universities and cooperate with the Ministry of Agriculture, KKL-JNF, Mashav and Netafim. Our projects are led by passionate volunteers who work together with local experts. We have demonstrated that high quality tomato varieties yield more than 5 times the average national yield. Higher yields together with better crop quality increased farmers’ income by more than 8 fold!

Training and capacity building programs for spreading the use of better seeds throughout the country and scaling up this impact are now underway. The increased income will enable millions of farmers to gain food security, exit the cycle of poverty, send their children to school and provide their families with a better future.
