The FARO commitment with the coffee producers

fairtrade certified since 1998

For more than 20 years now, the FARO team has offered FairTrade coffees and goes as far as visiting farmers and coffee plantations every year. Although fair trade represents only 0.01% of all commerce worldwide, according to the Fair Trade Federation, we insist on doing our part. We believe in solidarity and respect for others in our trading practices.

$150 000 IN FAIRTRADE PREMIUM PAID BY FARO IN 4 YEARS

FairTrade certification allows producers to receive a premium on the sale of their green coffee beans. Often gathered in cooperatives, they democratically decide on the distribution of premiums within their communities.

Between 2015 and 2019, purchases of FairTrade certified coffee by FARO generated almost 150 000 USD in premiums.

Here is how these premiums are dispatched in the producting communities

IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF PRODUCERS

FairTrade coffee producers democratically decide on the distribution of the premiums received, according to their needs. This graph shows that most of the premiums paid by FARO are used to pay producers directly. After that, training and innovations for production are the most supported by premiums.

Spotlight on 2 partners

  • JUMARP COOP
  • ASPROGUATE COOP

JUMARP Coop is located in Peru. Coffee was introduced in the region in the 1950's, but unfortunately most of the production relied on massive use of chemicals. When it was founded in 2003, the cooperative aimed to reforest and maintain the land damaged by time and chemicals. After receiving their FairTrade certification, they soon realized that coffee could be a great way to promote ethical production while promoting the development of the local community.

JUMARP invested in wet mill, storage but also in test and laboratory structures. They also invest massively in the training of their members.

financial help

Much of the premium is used to compensate producers when the coffee market is at its lowest.
