We care about our actions

At FFI we are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, protecting the forests, defending the human rights of everyone in our supply chain and adhering to the highest ethical trading standards.

By working together to develop commercial strategies that encompass both sustainability and our business goals, we are playing our part in helping to change ways of thinking and make the coffee industry both ethical and sustainable for future generations.
