Fair Trade

We at Saelig Company Inc. support Fair Trade practices. So we are pleased to report that the Dunkin Donuts cards we give away free with $50 orders supports Fair Trade. Did you know that every time you buy an Espresso, Cappuccino or Latte beverage from Dunkin’ Donuts that you’re supporting Fair Trade? Dunkin’ Donuts’ espresso beans are 100% Fair Trade Certified™ and selected from high-quality Arabica beans, providing additional income to the farmers who grow and harvest it. Farmers who participate in Fair Trade can count on income stability that allows them to invest in sustainable farming practices and socio-economic programs. Fair Trade premiums going back to farming communities allows them to fund business enhancements, quality improvements, infrastructure construction or other community projects, depending on their unique needs. In addition, Fair Trade’s environmental standards have helped many Fair Trade farmers to improve the sustainability of their farms. According to Fair Trade USA, an estimated 30 percent of producer organizations invest a portion of their Fair Trade premiums in environmental initiatives. So the next time you place an order with us over $50, request a Dunkin Donuts card and give yourself a pat on the back for supporting Fair Trade and ensuring economic stability for the coffee farmers who bring us great tasting Fair Trade Certified™ espresso beans.
