Fair Trade practices include:

  • Paying farming families a fair price for their harvests, providing them with a decent living wage.
  • Helping small farmers gain access to needed loans for working capital.
  • Establishing direct, long-term trading relationships between buyers and farmers.

Nectar of Life Believes in Ethical Trade

Nectar of Life is proud to participate in the support of Fair Trade farmers. The farmers who grew your coffee get a fair price, and you support the work of coffee education and community development around the world!

By ensuring that farmers earn a fair price for their coffee, Fair Trade helps struggling small-scale farmers to put food on the table even as world coffee prices reach historic lows. By ensuring that these farmers get access to credit and technical assistance, Fair Trade helps them to survive in a competitive international market. And by building long-term relationships with the low-income coffee farmers who grow the coffee you drink, Fair Trade helps make meaningful connections between producers overseas and socially conscious consumers like you here in the United States. Fair Trade farmers that grow certified organic coffees receive a higher guaranteed premium for their coffees. By only purchasing organic Fair Trade certified coffees Nectar of Life pays a substantial premium that helps farmers and their families.

So when you purchase Fair Trade coffee, you are not just buying great coffee. You are helping to build a better world, one cup at a time!
