About us

Evergreen Import

Unlike fair trade, direct trade does not have its own seal or label. But this does not have to be a disadvantage. Because so all investments flow directly into social and ecological projects and not in complex and costly certification processes. Direct Trade also includes a bundle of social and economic measures such as training, coaching, financing and support projects. In this way, knowledge is built up for quality assurance and the continuous improvement of cultivation methods is made possible. The trade chain should remain transparent from the producer to the consumer to ensure that a fair share of the sales price also reaches the people who grow and harvest the coffee for us in laborious and careful manual work.
