Our Coffee in the context of the United Nations
Better known as the Stockholm Conference, several principles were established to guide the environmental policies for the whole planet, with the following pillars: Human Rights, National Resources Management, Pollution Prevention, Environment and the Warfare Material Development.
In this context, Brazil’s New Forest Code of 2012 provided a legal framework for the protection of native vegetation, a conquest that conciliates conservation and production, with the definition of rules to regularize rural properties in this regard.
The main coffee producing regions of Brazil are located in states in which rural properties have, on average, a percentage of their area dedicated to native vegetation conservation above the amount required by the Brazilian Forestry Code.
We believe in the sustainability of the Brazilian coffee chain through respect of labor and environmental laws, considered one of the most rigorous in the world, as well by the solid economic outcome generated year by year. Therefore we source our coffee from certified farmers only.
The BSCA seal is the guarantee that the coffee we sell is produced with high quality. The BSCA seal is unique to speciality coffees.
