LOCAL COMMUNITIES

THE FACTS

Blue Skies operates in parts of the world where our staff and farmers live in communities that lack basic infrastructure and resources such as decent schools, and clinics and access to safe, clean water drinking water and hygienic toilet facilities. For this reason, Blue Skies believes that it is the business’s inherent duty to do what it can to help where it is needed the most.
