Fair Trade Scotland Limited
Everyone loves drinking Mzuzu Coffee - in its distinctive gold packaging - when they visit Malawi. However, up to now it has not been possible to buy outside of Malawi, hence there is always a bag or two in a suitcase when returning home. So to grow the export market for the finished product - and keeping the all important roasting income in Malawi - we have teamed up with Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union to bring in the roasted and packaged coffee. This is also the first coffee in the world to carry both the FAIRTRADE Mark and the WFTO Guaranteed Fair Trade Label. When it comes to looking after the environment too - did you know the green bean is 20% heavier than the roasted bean - so great for the climate too! The whole supply chain is independently audited against the 10 WFTO Principles from producer to consumer - what is there not to love about Mzuzu Golden Coffee?
Keeping the roasting income in Malawi means Mzuzu coffee farmers have a 200% increase in income compared to exporting the green bean, providing sustainable economic development, through trade not aid. As a Fair Trade Nation we would hope this Malawi Fair Trade coffee influences future Scottish Government Procurement Policies.
