This company sells Rainforest Alliance certified coffee. However this only represents a fraction of this company's total coffee sales. Rainforest Alliance certification has been dubbed 'Fairtrade light' by critics, as it offers producers no minimum price for their crop, and guarantees a minimum of just 30% of the product is certified.

This company sells UTZ certified coffee, promoting fair and sustainable coffee production. However this only represents a fraction of this company's total coffee sales. UTZ certification ensures the cocoa is sourced and produced sustainably on farms with safe working conditions. However unlike Fairtrade certification, UTZ does not offer a minimum or guaranteed price, and the environmental standards of UTZ Certified are far weaker than those of either Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance.
