ARAMARK On...Coffee

Background:
Coffee remains one of America’s favorite beverages. Increasingly, consumers are inquiring about the origins of the coffee they drink: How it’s grown, who grows it, and how coffee farming is impacting the environment.

Several coffees now offer different labels, including:

  • Organic: Growing practices emphasize the avoidance of synthetic chemicals, including synthetic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers.
  • Shade Grown: The coffee plants are grown under a natural canopy of trees and foliage, which also provide homes for resident and migratory birds.
  • Fair Trade: Coffee is purchased from farmers at a fair and reasonable price, which in turn promotes higher living standards, thriving communities and more sustainable farming practices.
ARAMARK’s Position:
ARAMARK is dedicated to providing its customers with a broad portfolio of coffee options that meet their varying tastes and preferences. The company’s selection of coffees includes a wide range of brands and options, including coffees certified as Organic, Shade Grown and Fair Trade from providers such as Starbucks, Seattle’s Best, Green Mountain, Java City, and Pura Vida.
