Interview with Alex Schmidt and Marie Louise of

Valy Exports, Madagascar

 

I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from Alex Schmidt from Valy Export Madagascar mid April. 

I invited him and his wife Marie Louise for lunch to learn more about their fair trade business.

During the visit I politely asked if the couple would like to participate in an interview, they agreed.

Although, a little camera shy I hope the interviews below provide consumers with an insight about their fairtrade activities and information about their products and future plans.
