Delight Group, and the Delight Health and Wellness Foundation, are taking a leadership role by

partnering with Good Earth Cotton and conducting the research and development necessary to learn from and adapt the programme and principles. This programme represents a first-of-its kind in India.

1977 Indian cotton farms, spanning 3,689 hectares of land, commenced the journey of converting to Good Earth Cotton.

It is forecasted that in 2023 across participating Australian and Indian farms +200,000 bales of Good Earth Cotton will be produced, enough to create an estimated 160 million garments.

Participating Good Earth Cotton farmers will report primary impact data on an annual basis.It is anticipated that it will take three years (cropping seasons) for these growers to fully adopt the Good Earth Cotton programme.

Delight Group, one of India’s leading organic agricultural cultivators and traders,will not only use FibreTrace to verify and trace the Good Earth Cotton production in India when ready, but as of late 2022 will be introducing FibreTrace across certified Indian Organic cotton.

Abhishek Doshi, Chief Executive Officer of Delight Group, commented “Delight Group has been built on the values of respect for people and planet, when we learnt about the progress being made by Danielle and David Statham on the Good Earth Cotton programme in Australia and realised a strong sense of shared values, we were eager to lead the research and development necessary in India to adapt practice change and result.”

Danielle Statham, Co-founder of Good Earth Cotton, said“We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with Abhishek and the Delight Group team and share a common ground on wanting to improve the climate positive and transparent outcomes of the global cotton industry.”

Good Earth Cotton, backed by the power of FibreTrace, is the world’s first climate positive, traceable cotton.The Australian developed programme elevates the role of the grower, ensuring full participation in the future of the global textile industry.
