We are gebana

Together we change global trade in favour of family farmers, local communities and the environment.

2025

Together with hundreds of thousands of customers and family famers worldwide, gebana is leading the way in sustainable trade.

TODAY
Global Farmer’s Market

gebana thinks and trades well beyond "organic" and "fair", changing the rules of trade.

We create market access

On the online platform for crowd projects, we share our knowledge on food imports with other start-ups, NGOs and producer groups. This creates market access thanks to crowd ordering and crowdfunding.

We sell directly

Our products reach the consumers via our online shop. Fresh fruits and vegetables are ordered in advance and we ship them once they are ripe and freshly harvested.

We think holistically

We are committed to much more than just organic and fair trade certifications. gebana always looks at the entire value chain and gradually develops the most sustainable product, because we acknowledge sustainability as a continuous process.

We know the farmers

We know our farmers personally, provide agricultural training and pay them directly. No place is too far for us to meet them, not even the most remote villages.

We invest

Investing in local food production creates jobs and income. In doing so, we knowingly take great risk and get involved in the poorest countries in the world.

We trade

We support our local producers by selling their organic and FLO Fairtrade certified products to wholesalers. This creates autonomous companies that work independently of us.

We are involved politically

Politics has the most leverage when it comes to making trade fairer. That's why we stand up for policies that share our goal.
