Our partnership programmes are sustainability programmes in the countries of origin. We implement the programmes in cooperation with export companies or other partners. The focus of the programmes is on improving the farmer’s livelihood and ensuring the continuity of coffee farming as well as developing the entire local community. Approximately one fifth of our coffee is currently sourced through partnership programs. Many producers included in the programs are also certified. Those producers who are not yet certified have been verified by our local partner in the origin country according to the Paulig Code of Conduct and will additionally be verified sustainable by a third party audit in 2019.
