While delivering the best drinks around, we have a social conscience and are ethical in our sourcing. We have a great interest in the good work being carried out by the Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade Foundation and endeavour to have a large proportion of these products in our range.
The Rainforest Alliance was founded in 1987. It’s conservation work was based on the understanding that the health of the land is inextricably linked to the quality of life of those that depend on it for their livelihoods. They set to work designing market-based solutions to address the global crisis of rampant deforestation. Since the beginning, their approach has been to promote and reinforce ecosystem health, economic opportunity and the well-being of communities as inseparable elements of sustainability.
Over the past two and a half decades, they’ve fostered connections between a kaleidoscopic array of collaborators, from farmers and tourism businesses to consumers, distributors and companies. As a result, more than 128 million acres (51.8 million ha) of land in more than 100 countries are now sustainably managed or conserved, benefitting millions of people across the globe. As they work to realise their vision of a truly sustainable world, they emphasize the following key elements: biodiversity, social responsibility, an ethical economy and climate resilience.
The Rainforest Alliance aim to halt the destruction of the rain forests by providing solutions to the problem of deforestation. It sets out to provide farmers with economic incentives to stop them destroying their environment. Certified farmers under the scheme can receive an extra 10 to 60 cents above the market price for a pound of green coffee beans.
For growers to be certified by the alliance, they must meet a list of “sustainable agriculture principles”. These include conserving local wildlife and water resources, minimising soil erosion and treating workers fairly, as well as protecting forests and reforesting where possible. In return, they receive the tools to lift themselves out of poverty and open their coffee to more profitable premium markets. Assistance is given to help them become more cost-efficient, for example, being shown how to transform the coffee pulp into fertiliser, which used to be discarded, hence negating the need to spend money on this item.
The objective of the Fairtrade Foundation is relieve poverty, suffering and distress in any part of the world and promote research into and education concerning the causes and effects of poverty, particularly in relation to the conduct and to the conditions of employment (including self-employment) of poor people in any part of the world, and publishing the useful results of that research.
To relieve poverty in the world’s least developed countries, the Fairtrade Foundation licenses the use of the ‘Fairtrade’ mark that meets international Fairtrade standards. The sales of such products relieve the poverty of producers in the developing world by ensuring that they receive at least a fair price for their goods and an additional social premium. The social premium is democratically allocated by producers to develop and support local community projects, such as schools or equipment, clean water and health care, or to improve the productivity of their businesses.
The Fairtrade vision is of a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade structures and practices so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood and develop their full potential.
