Fair for Life’s summary of Trabocca

Trabocca is pleased to have contributed to a solid supply chain of Fair for Life certified coffees from SRFCF Sidamo coffee producer for a roaster committed to work with them on the long run. They strongly believe in longterm relationships that bring the proper income to producers to further develop their community and simultaneously provide roasters with a steady supply of great quality coffees that are both socially as well sustainably sourced. With their existing roaster buyer being enthusiastic about this Ethiopian supply chain, they are on the verge of helping create another supply chain in Peru. At the same time, they see more roasters becoming interested in this Fair for Life program, so Trabocca is both helping to develop more supply chains at origin as well as developing sales options for these producers. Future for all stakeholders looks bright. For their Ethiopian friends, they are pleased to announce being able to pay some US$ 23000 of premiums in the first year of this partnership agreement.
