Our close collaboration with our producers has many benefits: not only do we improve the quality of our coffees and teas, but also the living and labour conditions of the people working for us.
For example, we already helped build a school, a dental practice and coffee processing facilities. We want the workers who grow our coffee and tea to be as passionate about our products as we are. In order to instil this passion, Simon Lévelt is a fierce supporter of organic cultivation; this way, we protect our planet and we support the workers.
Did you know that our support to the communities that grow our coffee and tea doesn’t end with us buying their products? Sometimes we lend a helping hand by funding schools too!
In the 80’s Simon Lévelt introduced organic coffee and tea to the Dutch market. In addition, 80% of the coffee and the tea is bought directly in the country of origin. In our dealings with our suppliers we adhere to the guidelines for fair trade as much as possible. All our coffee and tea have an organic certification.
