Starbucks Ethical Sourcing of Sustainable Products
Our success is linked to the success of the farmers and suppliers who grow and produce our products.
Helping people thrive helps ensure the long-term sustainability of the premium products we provide. Whether it’s arabica coffee, tea, cocoa or manufactured goods, we’re committed to offering ethically purchased and responsibly produced sustainable products of the highest quality.
We seek to serve high-quality arabica coffee that is responsibly grown and ethically traded.
Tea is the world’s second-most popular beverage after water. Our commitment to a long-term strategy of ethical tea sourcing is a chance for us to use our scale for good on a global scale.
Our cocoa-purchasing practices are designed to ensure a long-term supply of high-quality, ethically sourced cocoa. We verify our cocoa supply chain with inspections performed by independent verifiers.
- Manufactured Goods
Starbucks ethical sourcing means responsibility in the merchandise, furniture and other items found in our stores. We work with suppliers who share our commitment and adhere to the strong standards we’ve set.
