Since then we have been doing Fair Trade and giving special priority to the people we work with. Nowadays, we maintain cooperative trade relations with more than 60 producer groups who are comprised of thousands of producers and small-scale farmers.

The Best for Everyone - The Fair Trade Cooperative dwp eG

When importing from 30 countries all over the world, we give priority to a transparent commerce where the channels of trade can be traced back and controlled at any given time from the producers to our customers. Therefore, we consider it very important to pass on well-founded information about our producers, their life situation, and their methods of production. Frank communication and regular visits provide us with up-to-date first-hand information. This complex and intensive work has been possible to accomplish due to our exceptional team of employees. We thereby emphasize an efficient structure promoting participation and personal responsibility as great factors of motivation.
