Based in Kotagiri in the heart of Nilgiri mountains, Last Forest Enterprise has been a market intermediary for wild forest produce that is harvested by indigenous communities since 2010.
These communities are working on forest and agriculture produce, which are natural, wild and local.
Last Forest procures from over 45 groups across the country and sells through over 100 outlets including their own three retail shops in the Nilgiris. The company works with more than 150 villages impacting thousands of people.
Last Forest caters to the entire supply chain of procurement, quality check, brand, promote and sell organic, fair trade, and indigenous products.
I had the honour and pleasure of working with them on their marketing strategy and social media marketing. One of the campaigns was on the company’s commitment to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade set by the World Fair Trade Organisation
