Australian coffee brand St Remio is running a campaign to support female farming for the World Coffee Day.
The brand will contribute 50 cents from the sale of each box of its compatible capsules and $1 for each bag of coffee sold in both Coles and its online store. The money will be used to support female farmers in Cocagi, West Rwanda.
“Your choice is a powerful one and simply by choosing St Remio you will have a positive impact directly on the lives of growers,” said Julia Tink, director and founder of St Remio.
“Our whole philosophy at St Remio is to challenge people to think about coffee and drive the conversation away from commodity and back to community.”
The female farming group of Cocagi has been affected by unpredictable weather damaging crops as well as delays in training due to the global pandemic. The company said it will remain investing into the community to “ensure success and prosperity for the female farmers”.
