Sustainable coffee growing – fair partnerships
For Deutsche Extrakt Kaffee (DEK), it is important that all bean buying and trading processes run properly and fairly. That is why we are involved in organisations that are committed to fair trade coffee and sustainability. Many of our products have seals to show for it.
Moving more together and collectively making a difference: The protection of human rights and the environment in the coffee supply chain are close to our hearts. That is why we have joined forces with other companies in the coffee sector under the umbrella of the German Coffee Association. Our common goal is to improve the sustainability of the coffee supply chain and to fulfil our due diligence obligations in accordance with the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz). With this goal in mind, the joint complaint procedure Ear4U was launched. Ear4U can be reached via online form, hotline and free app. Clear and comprehensible: Further information about the procedure can be found on the website www.ear4u.org.
Responsible handling of the resources and the living conditions of producers in the growing countries are an important foundation for the future.
