Rucquoy Frères, a family-owned company founded in 1919, is passionately dedicated to the exclusive importation of green coffees.
Pioneer member of the SCAA, pioneer for Organic, FLO Fairtrade, UTZ, RFA and ISO 22000 Quality Assurance certifications. These "Quality" approaches translate into the marketing of finely selected, sustainable and quality verified coffees according to the needs of each client.
Their family dimension allows them to offer a perfectly 'tailor-made' service for any project from the tasting room with the customer if he wishes...to the delivery.
In addition to the innovative fair value of the Fair For Life standard, the environmental dimension is essential to us and is therefore perfectly in line with their company's concerns.
