Rainforest Alliance Certified. The Rainforest Alliance seal is the first comprehensive set of standards to incorporate the ‘three pillars’ of sustainability – social, economic and environmental (or people, profit and planet). Conceived as much as an industry (in addition to consumer) response to sustainability demands, the Rainforest Alliance seal has begun to be adopted by roasters globally.
DRW was the first coffee importer in the UK to actively promote the Rainforest Alliance seal in 2003. Consumer awareness for the seal increases year on year.
A number of our suppliers have multiple certifications giving us the ability to offer 1 coffee with 3 seals.
For efforts promoting the seal, DRW was awarded the Rainforest Alliance’s ‘Corporate Green Globe’ Award in 2003. (www.rainforest-alliance.org)
