Grinders Coffee Roasters continues its support for fair trade coffee farmers and communities this Fairtrade Fortnight (3-16 August 2018)
As the largest branded roaster of Fairtrade green beans in Australia, Grinders Coffee Roasters will continue its support for coffee farmers and communities this Fairtrade Fortnight (3-16 August), as it has done every day for the past eight years.
Grinders is the largest branded roaster of Fairtrade green beans in Australia. Since 2008, Grinders has sold more than 1.7 million kilograms of Fairtrade Coffee and generated over A$1.1 million to help support 844,311 Fairtrade farmers and their communities in 475 cooperatives from 31 countries across the world. Fairtrade is an independent certification system that provides farmers and workers in developing countries with practical and technical support to grow their businesses and support their local communities, and a fair price – the Fairtrade Price - for their produce, helping protect them from damaging fluctuations in world market prices.
Consumers can help support Fairtrade famers and their communities by adding sustainability to their trolley this Fairtrade Fortnight, and every fortnight. The Grinders range of Fairtrade Organic coffee products includes 200g Ground packs of Espresso and Crema coffee (available in Coles), and 1kg bags of Espresso and Crema beans (Coles, Woolworths and Metcash). The range accounts for over 42 per cent of all Grinders grocery sales* and has earned a number of national awards, including a silver and bronze medal at 2017 & 2018 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show (Fairtrade Organic Crema beans, 2017 & 2018 – Latte and Plunger Coffee Categories).
