Statement of support

“For over 100 years, Farmer Bros. Co. has cherished the act of service—focusing on service to our customers, our employees, and our community. But as we look toward the future, it’s clear that service can and should mean something much more and should extend to every person in our supply chain and every community that we touch. We believe that the quality, safety, and traceability of the ingredients and components that our partners supply are a key part of our sustainability model. Within the Farmer Brothers SEED (social, environmental, and economic development) framework, we set our responsible sourcing goals using social, environmental, and economic pillars. Through SEED, we seek to create a sustainable business that can nurture communities, strengthen our supply chain, create long-term viability, and help manage business risk. The Sustainable Coffee Challenge helps support Farmer Brothers’ goal of addressing critical issues in the coffee supply chain.”
