Fair Trade Coffee
Free and Fairtrade Coffee Beans from Cisco’s
Coffee is one of the largest industries responsible for huge trading policies between countries around the world and as such has become an extremely valuable product. Interestingly, most of the world’s coffee beans are farmed by small family businesses in developing countries.
As a result of their size they have little bargaining power relative to a few large and powerful international companies that have monopolised the business. For that reason, never have free trade coffee beans been more important than they are now.
Help make the system fair by buying our delicious organic fairtrade coffee, while also helping to make the coffee producers’ working conditions much fairer.
Unfortunately, the conditions for many of these small farmers are terrible and they are forced to price their produce very low.
The Fairtrade Coffee Beans system aims to increase the buying power of the smaller companies so that their wages are reasonable. Companies that participate in the free trade system don’t abuse their producers, but are fighting against the big monopolies.
Fairtrade is currently working with approximately 445 coffee producer organisations from around the world to ensure that more than 800,000 farmers are paid a fair price for their coffee beans and hard work.
Purchase our delicious fairtrade coffee beans online, and you’ll help make a difference to these farmers’ lives.
