A fair cup of coffee

Most Hesburger restaurants sell Organic and Fairtrade certified Paulig Mundo coffee. It has been roasted responsibly and grown organically from arabica coffee beans. Its gentle toasty taste includes dark sugar and honey.

Organic and Fairtrade certificates guarantee the sustainability of Paulig Mundo coffee

All Paulig Mundo coffee beans come from sources that have been verified sustainable. This means that all Paulig Mundo coffee is sourced through verified sustainable partnership programmes or certified sustainable sources. Paulig roasts 370 billion sustainable coffee beans every year.  If you put them in line, they would go 68 times around the world!

Fairtrade

The Fairtrade label means the raw material has been produced in compliance with the international criteria for Fairtrade, and the production is on a socially, economically and ecologically sustainable foundation. Fairtrade guarantees that the farmer gets paid a minimum price that covers the costs of sustainable production. In addition to the minimum price, there is a Fairtrade bonus for projects that help develop the entire community. The system has been created to improve the status of smallholder farmers and their workers in developing countries in the international trade.

There is an average of 1,500 coffee plants in one farm, and on a good year one plant produces one package of coffee. Currently, around 800,000 coffee farmers, which is 3.5 percent of all coffee farmers in the world, participate in the Fairtrade system.

Organic or organically farmed

Organic coffee is made of organically farmed coffee beans. The principle is to use production methods that are not harmful to nature or the health and well-being of humans, plants, or animals. For instance, the amount of allowed additives and auxiliary substances in organic farming has been limited to bare necessities. In Finland, the production and marketing of organic products is supervised by the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment, National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health Valvira, Finnish municipalities and Customs. 

The Organic certificate is always combined with the Fairtrade certificate in Paulig’s coffees, which means that in addition to the environmental responsibility, social responsibility is also taken into consideration.
