Fair Trade is an innovative, market-based approach to sustainable development. Fair Trade helps family farmers in developing countries to gain direct access to international markets, as well as to develop the business capacity necessary to compete in the global marketplace. By learning how to market their own harvests,
Fair Trade farmers are able to bootstrap their own businesses and receive a fair price for their products. This leads to higher family living standards, thriving communities and more sustainable farming practices. Fair Trade empowers farming families to take care of themselves - without developing dependency on foreign aid.
The Fair Trade Certified label guarantees:A fair price
The Fair Trade Certified label guarantees that farmers and workers received a fair price for their product. The Fair Trade price means that farmers can feed their families and that their children can go to school instead of working in the fields.
By receiving a fair price, Fair Trade producers can avoid cost-cutting practices that sacrifice quality. The Fair Trade producers’ traditional artisan farming methods result in exceptional products.
What is Organic Coffee and Why Do We Offer It?
In this century, coffee, which is the world’s second largest traded food commodity, has also been one of the most chemically treated food crops in the world. It is being sprayed, without regulation, with DDT, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides which have been determined to be hazards to good health and to the environment.
This affects not only the farmers who grow the coffee in the coffee producing areas of the world, but also their families, their land, their water, and the consumer. The pesticide residues enter the ground and are systemically transported into the beans which in turn become our beverage.
By contrast, organic agriculture focuses on building healthy soil through composting, inter-cropping, terracing, introduction of appropriate biological pest control, shade trees such as mangoes and banana, and a whole system of compatible, sustainable agriculture for the coffee trees. Drinking organic coffee promotes the health of the environment, the health of the coffee grower, and the health of the coffee drinker.
