Ethical Trading

Options Management are keen to develop fair trade and by working with global brands such as PG, Douwe Egberts, Calypso, Milfresh and Café Nueva and Lavazza, we are one step closer to ensuring the suppliers we use are conducting their business in a manner which complies with ethical trading certificates.

Below you can find a number of causes we are involved with in one way or another :

Café de Colombia

Café de Colombia is the symbol of the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia (the FNC)

Founded in 1927, the FNC is a non-government run organisation entirely owned by Colombia’s 566,000 coffee growers.

In place to ensure fair, equitable and sustainable polices keep trade profitable and regulated

Rainforest Alliance

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour.

The rigorous standards that need to be met to earn the certification makes it easy for customers to know they are buying a product that has been grown or made sustainably.

Fairtrade

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

This attempts to balance out the injustices of conventional trades which traditionally discriminates against the poorest and weakest coffee producers.

Organic Farmers

The Organic Farmers & Growers Certification is about more than just the label.

It is about ensuring methods of farming and food production are kind to the environment, protect animal welfare and healthier for humans to consume
