Social responsibility and ethical trading
We work both globally as well as regionally in direct collaboration with small-scale organic producers. It is essential for us to work by fair trade principles and to make this work socially sustainable for the producers. We ensure that compliance with standards of good social practice and fair trading is granted for our products by third party certification and regular supply chain controls by our staff.
We are fairtrade operator with FLO ID 22875
Most of our products from Third World countries are regularly checked by accredited audit organisations for compliance with good social practice. Examples for possible standards are Eco Social, IBD or audits by SEDEX, BSCI etc.
Our suppliers are long-term partners with fair and guaranteed price policy. Guaranteed and traceable origin instead of anonymous commodity trade is a central value in our philosophy.
