Our women farmers gain income from their own rainforest plots, nurture their family, community and control their families’ financial destiny. I couldn’t be more proud of being part of this Empowering Women project as I see us making a measurable difference.

Bali Spice Islands showcased its diverse line of coconut chips and sugar, rice and various spices at January’s ECRM® EPPS event, each of which promotes sustainable farming practices by providing fair-trade prices to rural Indonesian farmers.
The Vitamin, Weight Management and Sports Nutrition Efficient Program Planning Sessions (EPPS) is a trade show where health, wellness and nutrition companies like Bali Spice Islands can network with major retail buyers in private sessions and show off their products. ECRM® helped grow Bali Spice Islands’ brand recognition, letting people learn about its products imported to the U.S.
“Bali Spice Islands represents more than just great products,” CEO Lisa Gorman said. “It represents a choice to live better through healthier eating, and promoting sustainable farming practices. Our products don’t just taste great; they have benefits to your body and the world. We are ecstatic to help spread the reach of Indonesian farmers’ work so they are provided an opportunity to succeed in a globalized world.”
Rural Indonesian farmers rely on partnerships, such as the one between Bali Spice Islands and the Indonesian Rainforest Foundation, to help with promotion and distribution of products at a price set by global standards. These higher prices allow farmers to use sustainable practices, which in turn is better for the longevity of Earth.
“The ‘Empowering Women’ project is associated with the manufacturing of Coconut Sugar and represents a huge step in the right direction putting women in charge of their own small business enterprise,” Gorman continued. “Our women farmers gain income from their own rainforest plots, nurture their family, community and control their families’ financial destiny. I couldn’t be more proud of being part of this Empowering Women project as I see us making a measurable difference.”
EPPS is a branch of the Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing (ECRM®) event series held Jan. 7-11 at the Hilton Washington in Washington, D.C. Brands were able to have direct discussions with retailers and other brands about business objectives like product launches, marketing campaigns and more. Some of the major retailers include Amazon.com, Costco, CVS, GNC, Harris Teeter, LuckyVitamin.com, Meijer, Sam’s Club, The Fresh Market, Vitamin Shoppe, Walgreens, Whole Foods and more.
Bali Spice Islands Coconut Chips fall under dietary guidelines including Paleo, vegan, diabetic, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, soy-free and low-carb.
