We work closely with Farmers and Cooperative Unions
Being a registered supplier for WFP in 2008, GUTS has produced high quality corn soya blend food products (CSB+) supplied to WFP. This have benefited local farmers from annual procurement of nearly 100,000 quintals of maize, soya bean and chickpeas, which are directly collected from the farmer cooperative unions. The company works closely with cooperative unions towards improving their supplying capacities by getting into pre-harvest agreements including provision of pre-harvest advance payments to the unions that contributed towards improving their financial constraints.
Health and Hygiene
- Implementation of Good Hygiene Practices (GHP) across all factories, validated by global organizations like UN-World Food Program, Micro-Nutrient Initiative (MI) etc.
- Mandatory household and factory hygiene practices training provided to every employee of the organization every six months by a trained professional, implementation checked periodically
- Providing safe, potable ground-fed water to local community of about 10,000 citizens around the Guts premises in Bishoftu, Ethiopia, thereby reducing water-borne diseases in the area and reducing destitution faced by women and children in traveling long distances to find clean water.
