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.
The New Internationalist magazine is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.
I began buying the New Internationalist magazine because it started to educate me on issues that I was interested in; globalization, fair trade, inequities, injustice ... it has huge authority and credibility and authenticity ...
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
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.
