English buyers attracted by certified Salvadoran coffee

El Salvador boasts 270 plantations certified with the Rainforest Alliance seal, a feature sought by English buyers.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Mike Riley, from the English company Taylors of Harrogate, explained to ElSalvador.com his relation with Salvadoran suppliers: "Why do you prefer buying coffee that has the Rainforest Alliance certification?
Taylors of Harrogate is a family company that toasts coffe and tea in England. We consider important for our coffee or tea suppliers to be responsible with the society and the environment. Since we do not depend on stockholders, we do not seek the lowest priced raw materials, but we are interested in having a special price for the producer to continue working."
