Great tasting superior Arabica instant coffee grown in small plots by Colombian cafeteros, and processed in a freeze-drying factory belonging to the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, run by the farmers. The factory has the most advanced technology available, and in a completely natural process uses only water and 100% Colombian arabica beans to make an excellent instant coffee, which is extremely sought-after and sells at a significant price premium on the international coffee market.
Certified Fairtrade, the coffee is bought from the farmers at a guaranteed price that covers the cost of production and ensures a living wage for growers, leaving a great taste in your mouth for many reasons.
The National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia is run by over 500,000 small-scale Colombian coffee farmers, or 'cafeteros'.
Whilst the Colombian Coffee Growers' Federation may look like a competent, alternative government or a big business with social sensibilities, it is still fundamentally an organisation of smallholder farmers. It remains a striking example of what farmers can achieve by working together and should be considered as a model for all aspiring growers' federations.
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
The New Internationalist magazine explains and clarifies all the confusions and contradictions we encounter daily in the media's international news coverage.
I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia. New Internationalist is about the only remaining forum of journalistic integrity and genuine humanity that is commonly available in Australia. I'm also very impressed with your New Internationalist shop. The products are fantastic and speak of the quality and dedication of their manufacturers. The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
