Corporate social responsibility has always been part of Café Britt’s culture. From the start, we’ve looked for ways to reduce our environmental impact and increase benefits for our employees and their families.
Our business model emphasizes the efficient use of natural resources, as well as sustainable growing and harvesting practices that honor the planet and protect workers. We’re also committed to building up the communities where we operate by promoting educational and cultural programs and enforcing a strict fair pay policy. Additionally, we promote green living through education, recycling initiatives, and company-wide best practices among our partners.
By setting up metrics, we are constantly measuring our success in achieving our CSR and environmental goals. Read on to learn about some of our current and past projects.
