From the birthplace of coffee comes this delicious Sidamo Ethiopia Gold fair trade coffee, roasted to perfection. Certified Fairtrade and organic, it's much better for the farming families, the environment and for your health.
The Fairtrade label on the packet is your guarantee that this coffee meets internationally agreed Fairtrade standards.
The Oromia Farmers Union buys coffee from grower cooperatives and sells it directly to overseas buyers. 70% of net profit goes back directly to the farmers, and the extra Fairtrade Premium you pay goes back to the cooperatives for community benefit.
The Negele Gorbitu Cooperative is just one of 74 cooperatives forming the Oromia Farmers Union, and over a 2 year period Negele Gorbitu built a new clinic and a school for 300 children from the Fairtrade Premium.
Available as medium ground or whole beans.
The Oromia Coffee Farmers Union represents 155 cooperatives involved in high quality Arabica coffee production in Ethiopia, the birth place of coffee.
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.
I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.
Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
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 Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
