Grinders Celebrates World Fairtrade Day – May 9

Siteadmin

Monday, 11 May 2020

We believe in a better coffee experience for everyone, and World Fair Trade Day is an opportunity to recognise the farmers and coffee-growing communities who work with Grinders Coffee to deliver a sustainable future.

As one Australia’s largest branded roaster of Fairtrade green beans, Grinders Coffee is proud to mark the international day by joining together with Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand in a global digital campaign.

The campaign features individuals and companies from around the world celebrating sustainable development, including economic empowerment of small producers, gender equality and responsible production practices.

The campaign features Grinders Coffee’s very own Master Roaster, Giuseppe Cianchi, who was happy to lend his support to this important annual celebration. “We are proud to be part of the Fairtrade community, supporting farmers and their communities,” Giuseppe said.

Since 2008 Grinders has sold more than 2.3 million kilograms of Fairtrade Coffee which has provided support to 795,400 Fairtrade farmers and their communities in 537 cooperatives from 31 countries across the world.

We are committed to providing economic empowerment and quality improvements through fairer prices and financial support for businesses and community development for our industry, in Australia and beyond.
