The natural latex for our Fair Rubber Association certified condoms comes from the state of Tamil Nadu in southern India.
The latex for the FAIR SQUARED condoms is produced at New Ambadi, a rubber plantation in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s sold under Fair Trade conditions. Sustainable production leads to increased biodiversity, animals have returned, plants thrive. The plantation offers environmental awareness classes, observations are shared with nearby villages. Respect and attention to detail not just in regard to nature are a shared responsibility.
Social responsibility and cooperation are important at New Ambadi. The Fair Trade premium paid on every kg of latex is used to improve the living and working conditions of the plantation workers. Workers and management decide jointly on how to use the Fair Trade premium. Access to medical treatment has been improved, students can apply for grants and loans and an additional pension scheme for the workers has been established.
Each FAIR SQUARED condom is electronically tested. FAIR SQUARED condoms are produced at CPR Germany GmbH , Sarstedt, Germany. CPR is an ISO certified producer of medicinal products and the condoms are produced in accordance with the European norm for condom production. The production is reviewed on a regular basis by a third party auditor, TÜV Rheinland.
