  • Transparency Report 2020

    Sustainability builds on the three pillars economy, agricultural and social. To be near sustainable, all of these three pillars need to be actively updated to standards year on year. Without one of the pillars, sustainability is unachievable. And I can tell you for sure, that nor agricultural or social will be looked after if we are not paying the real costs of the production.

FOB is the price of the coffee at the port at origin, before being shipped to us in Europe. We are sharing this, so you, as a consumer know what we have paid to the country that produced the coffee. The same measurement is used on the commercial market. At this time there are many coffee farmers going out of business due to the coffee price crisis, and we want to...
