A Strong & Sustainable Supply Chain


Friday, 19 July 2019

For our farmers and coffee growing communities, we partner with Fairtrade to provide economic empowerment and quality improvements through fairer prices and financial support for business and community development such as education, healthcare and environmental sustainability.

As Australia’s largest roaster of Fairtrade coffee beans, since 2010 we’ve generated over $1,475,000 to help support 795,400 Fairtrade farmers and their communities in 537 cooperatives from 30 countries across the world. Find out more about the Fairtrade difference.

About Fairtrade

Fairtrade is an independent certification system that offers farmers and workers in developing countries a better deal and improved terms of trade – giving them an opportunity to improve their working and living conditions, plan for a better future and create brighter opportunities for their families and local communities.

Fairtrade provides farmers and workers in developing countries with practical and technical support to grow their businesses and support their local communities, and a fair price (the Fairtrade Price) for their produce, helping protect them from damaging fluctuations in world market prices. They also receive additional financial support (the Fairtrade Premium) for investment in social, economic, and environmental development in their community, such as educational and medical facilities.
