Sustainability and transparency project for Ethiopian wild coffee

Consumer demands for sustainability and transparency have been growing rapidly in recent years. For Rainbow Coffee, sustainability and transparency have top priority. However, a product can only be as sustainable as its supply chain. This means taking into account working and production conditions at suppliers and, in addition, provide long-term support to the coffee farmers’ community.

To meet these challenges, Rainbow Coffee is partnering with Xylene to create a transparent supply chain where essential steps are tracked to deliver the best possible product to consumers. With the development together with Rainbow Coffee, consumers will have the opportunity to experience the origin of the products themselves and connect to the community to interact with coffee farmers in Ethiopia. We are entering a new era where you will not only drink coffee, but also support the local farmers.

From now on you can find our coffee products with a QR code that offers insight into the product origin. With a simple scan you have access to all information. Learn more about the coffee you drink!
