Oxfam will be launching its first ever range of Fairtrade certified, organic and biodegradable coffee capsules to coincide with International Coffee Day on Monday 29 September. Oxfam Australia Trading General Manager Julia Sumner said the new range was an exciting development for the Oxfam fair brand. “Not only do our capsules taste great, they also provide Australian shoppers with a convenient, ethical and environmentally friendly option in the market,” Ms Sumner said.
Oxfam is calling on Australians to help change the world in an instant with the release of its new Instant Coffee. Oxfam Australia Trading General Manager Julia Sumner said switching everyday purchases such as coffee was the easiest way for Australians to instantly help change the world.
“With only 4 per cent of the coffee sold in Australia being Fairtrade certified, the scope for Australians to help change the world in an instant through their everyday purchases is huge,” Ms Sumner said.
In 2013 we identified that the palm oil being used in the manufacture of a number of products stocked by Oxfam Australia Trading was not fully sustainable.
We have since been systematically reviewing our entire palm oil supply chain to ensure that only sustainably sourced palm oil or alternative materials are used in the manufacture of all our products.
