FAQ pre-order


The reason why we are making this proposal to you is because Umano lost all of its inventory on March 23 during the explosion at CVA Estrie. Following this accident, we decided to carry out this initiative to appeal to consumers for pre-financing. So we decided to roll up our sleeves and get you involved. Because our order from these producers is vital for hundreds of families. Because we are the only ones offering Fairtrade cashews in Canada. Because the scent of mangoes from Burkina is inimitable and we cannot live without it. Because part of Umano’s mission is to contribute to a healthy planet and agriculture on a human scale. Because through the messages we have received in the last few weeks, we know that this mission touches you and… Because we all want it to continue!


The mangos and cashews you order now will be delivered to you as soon as they are received in September.


All the products included in a pre-order will be delivered at the same time. This means that even if  some products are currently available, they will be shipped at the same time as the pre-ordered products.


We offer you today to show your commitment to fair trade by buying in advance your consumption of dried mangoes and cashew nuts.

You become a fair trade actor by participating in the pre-financing and by buying directly from the cooperative via Umano
