Twin and Twin Trading Ltd

Description

Twin is a pioneer and leader of the fair trade movement. We work on the ground with over 50 democratic farmer organisations in 18 countries representing some 400,000 smallholder farmers. We work with them to build capacity, develop infrastructure, overcome market barriers, adapt to the challenges of climate change and improve product quality – creating resilience and adding value to their businesses.

Twin Trading has been working exclusively with smallholder farmer organisations for over 25 years. We possess an unmatched blend of commitment, expertise and passion enabling us to provide high-quality sustainable relationships between farmers and roasters around the world.

Our trading model is to invest all our profits into our parent organisation, Twin, to support the charity and for projects that strengthen the business activities of our supplying cooperatives.

Twin Trading was established in 1985 to trade products fairly with smallholder producers unable to access the market. Coffee quickly became our big thing, we conducted all trading activity for the first fair trade coffee brand Cáfedirect. We haven't looked back since and now trade coffee in Europe, the USA, Australia and Asia.
