Our dual global/local sourcing commitment ensures all coffee-bean purchases come from either third-party-verified, socially/environmentally sustainable sources or registered Farm to Fork vendors
More and more Americans are thinking about where their food comes from, and the conditions in which it was grown. That goes for coffee, too.
Fueled by our Low Carbon Lifestyle program and our longtime focus on socially responsible sourcing, in March 2019 Bon Appétit pledged that by the end of 2021, all of our coffee-bean purchases will come either from a third-party-certified/-verified source or from vendors enrolled in Farm to Fork, Bon Appétit’s local-sourcing program.
Accepted certifications are Fair Trade, Certified Organic, Rainforest Alliance, and Bird Friendly. Accepted verifications are Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E) Practices and Enveritas.
Bon Appétit is also proud to have been the first food service provider to make a commitment to Fair Trade tea, in October 2015.
