All of our coffee at Fife Zoo is Triple Certified, that is to say Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance certified and Organic. The Fairtrade Mark is the only independent guarantee that coffee farmers have been paid a price that’s higher than the cost of production.
The Rainforest Alliance seal of approval means that coffee farmers look after the tropical forests where they live and work. This certifies that wildlife is protected, rivers are kept clean, and natural resources conserved.
Finally, the coffee is organic. This means the farmers don’t use unnecessary chemicals and pesticides – that’s good news for plant and animal life.
“The existing café is outstanding and very sustainably minded. Suppliers have been thoroughly vetted and vegan menus and other aspects are really cutting edge.” – Jon Procter, Green Tourism Assessor.
