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.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
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.
New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.
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.
