At Rapunzel Naturkost GmbH, Fair Trade and organic farming belong together. Working within this context, Rapunzel contributes a portion of its annual proceeds to the HAND IN HAND fund, a joint grant-funding initiative of the Deutsche Umwelthilfe (Environmental Action Germany).

HAND IN HAND fund grants range up to 5,000 Euros.
