Welcome to the Sustainable Alpaca Initiative. The Sustainable Alpaca Initiative is an industry-wide initiative aimed at improving the livelihood of alpaca farmers in Peru, while at the same time create a sustainable image for alpaca in general.
Leading companies in both Peru and USA have joined forces to start the Sustainable Alpaca Initiative. The goal is to improve the livelihood of alpaca farmers in Peru by creating a value chain that benefits all stakeholders in the supply chain. Consumers can trust the Sustainable Alpaca seal that farmers can build a decent living with their alpaca animals and that children of farmers are educated and taught how to read and write.
The newly formed Sustainable Alpaca Initiative is gaining momentum with new brand owners and suppliers becoming involved in the initiative. Also, with the support of specialized supply chain consultants, a plan will be created on how to create visibility in the supply chain and improve conditions for all stakeholders involved, especially the farmers.
In order to promote and expand the newly formed Sustainable Alpaca Initiative, a new website has been launched. The website will soon contain all relevant information such as the vision, timelines, and approach on how a better and more responsible alpaca supply chain can be created. Visit our website regularly to see our progress.
