In a noteworthy event for Indonesia's fair trade sector, renowned French fair trade activist and fashion trainer Andrean, along with Neti, a representative from the Federation of Fair Trade Organizations (FFTO) in Indonesia, visited Apikri on Monday, February 2, 2024. The delegation was warmly received by Apikri representatives, including Esti, Ely, Athi, Lasmanu, Azmi, and Moko. The primary objective of this visit was to gather insights from Apikri, a member of Federation of Fair Trade Organization (FFTO). Andrean, born in 1989, has a rich history of touring ASEAN countries, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and various regions in Indonesia, including Solo, Pekalongan, and Jogja.

Expressing deep admiration for the nearly 200 diverse products crafted by Apikri participants, Andrean engaged in discussions concerning the production processes. He was particularly interested in understanding whether products were individually made or crafted collaboratively by groups. Furthermore, Andrean inquired about Apikri's foreign buyers, noting the organization's existing relationships with eight buyers from the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Netherlands. A standout feature of the visit was Andrean's keen interest in Apikri's sustainable coffin products. He praised the innovative approach towards crafting sustainable coffins and expressed his fascination with this unique offering.

The outcomes of the visit to Apikri will be presented at the upcoming World Fair Trade Organization conference in France. Andrean, enthusiastic about sharing his experiences, plans to showcase Apikri through a detailed report and will carry a catalog to further promote the organization in international markets. This visit signifies a significant step towards strengthening global collaboration in the fair trade community, with Apikri's sustainable practices and diverse product range gaining recognition on an international platform.
