We are passionate
We are passionate about being local, food sovereignty, innovation in food and agriculture, being fair, giving back, creating partnerships. We are passionate about not doing business as usual and passionate about moving forward to a better normal. We are not alone We represent over 150 artisans and suppliers across diverse product ranges and are inspired not only by their creations
but by their expertise and professionalism. We commit to not making our own products but to supporting and representing other artisans. We believe that bountiful Bali can supply almost everything and where it can’t … well there is always something to look forward to when you travel.
Supporting Community and Creating Shared Value
Kelompok Bukit Mersari has been a close partner of Bali Direct for several years and we have recently started to invest in their production by building green houses. Green houses enable the farmers in the Kelompok to better manage risk by controlling the production environment.
supporting new business models
Aluan is a virgin coconut oil produced on Simuelele Island in Aceh by an impact investment company, GEI, aiming to provide alternative livelihood options to palm oil production. Their intention is to invest in new tree stocks, support closed circle production and organic certification of the virgin coconut oil. We were inspired by this initiative and raised USD 30,000 to support their initiative.
markets for artisans
Seraya village has a long tradition of weaving with plant dyes sourced directly from their garden which has ground to a halt due to the pandemic. We decided to support them to find a market for their beautiful fabrics and to launch www.balidirectgallery.com to support artists and artisans.
Bumi Sehat foundation supports mother and child healthcare through a birth clinic based in Ubud and is also supporting over 200 families with basic food needs during the pandemic. You can purchase food for Bumi Sehat wherever you are in the world on our website and we will match your contribution and deliver it to Bumi Sehat.
direct access for farmers
Blufarm is one of the few certified organic farms in Bali and is working hard to expand their range as well as growing produce, such as wide celery and chia, that is usually imported. Through direct access to our website Blufarm is able to update stock and price every morning.
