Annual Report 2018 Orang Utan Coffee Their future, our nature, your coffee - take responsibility


Our project The advancing destruction of tropical rainforests is threatening the existence of both, orangutans and farmers alike. The Orang Utan Coffee Project helps farmers operate ecologically friendly coffee plantations without clearing rainforests. Profits beyond the premium for the farmers are invested in organic certification, trainings such as organic farming methods, coffee production and processing, marketing, infrastructure and facilities such as processing and storage. With increasing sales of Orang Utan Coffee we provide effective and long-lasting support for the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) as well as for the coffee smallholders.
