Heidelberger Partnerschaftskaffee e.V. is a fair trade organization, formed in tradition of development cooperation with coffee cooperatives in Central America.
The special focal points of the Partnerschaftskaffee are :
– regular exchanges with coffee producers and their marketing organizations
– information for customers about production and living conditions from small producers, the global marked and possibilities for a better development
– additional financing of development ventures of the cooperatives and
– good accessibility of fair-trade coffee for customers in local food markets.
The lively partnership relations of the Partnerschaftskaffee with producer organizations are a formative element in promoting interest and recognition for this form of trade. In addition, organic coffee, as a product of everyday consumption, is particularly well suited to raising awareness of the existing imbalances between the global North and South. By providing comprehensive information on its pricing, trading conditions and promotions, the Partnerschaftskaffee creates a transparent basis for understanding Fair Trade and its fundamentals.
