About Socially Sustainable
There is a devastating and ongoing crisis in coffee among the world’s coffee farmers. It has simply become impossible for the majority of the world’s farmers to make a sustainable living while growing coffee. Although many “Fair Trade” certification programs exist to alleviate these problems, it has often been written that “Fair Trade ain’t fair.” Indeed, due to high certification costs to farmers and negative returns, farmers are sometimes worse off under these types of certification programs than before.
Socially Sustainable® recognizes and prioritizes the farmer’s sustainability above everything else in the value chain. By determining the average cost to produce coffee, we average the cost by region and country, then pay farmers with a gross 20% minimum for each pound of coffee. This 20% profit provides the farmer a life filled with hope and the dignity that everyone deserves.
