Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsEN / FR

Destination was created in 1999 by travel and gastronomy enthusiasts , convinced by organic farming. Located in Bordeaux (head office and roasting site), we control the entire value chain: Import, Transformation, Distribution. As a roaster, we sell coffees, teas, infusions, cocoa and sugars.
We want to offer the greatest number of people the opportunity to discover and taste quality organic coffee and tea.
For this, Destination commits on a daily basis to:
DEFEND short supply chains to bring closer consumption and production
SELECT our suppliers according to their social and environmental policy, where child labor is totally excluded
FAVOUR fair trade exchanges by promoting conditioning at the plantation within the fair trade framework

But our commitment is mostly reflected in concrete actions with our suppliers.
In 2016 we created FFL supply-chains for the Honduras coffee , Sri Lanka tea, Dominican Republic cocoa and Brazil sugar.
A responsible approach to engage producers in their daily projects:
-setting up self-entrepreneur projects generating additional income
-improving the living conditions of farmers (buying a bus, building a nursery ..) and organic farming practices
-setting up reception facilities for children from farmers'families.

Because all our actions, however small, have an impact, Destination will always act to minimize its environmental impact and enter the community of corporate citizens.

Destination a été créee en 1999 par des passionnés de voyages et de gastronomie, convaincus par le bio. Implantée à Bordeaux (siège social et atelier de torréfaction), nous maitrisons l'ensemble de la chaîne de valeurs: Importation, Transformation, Distribution. En qualité d'artisan torréfacteur, nous commercialisons des cafés, thés, infusions, cacaos et sucres.
Nous voulons offrir au plus grand nombre la possibilité de découvrir et de déguster des cafés et thés bio de qualité.
Pour cela, Destination s'engage au quotidien à :
DEFENDRE des filières en circuit court rapprochaint la consommation de la production
SELECTIONNER nos fournisseurs n fonction de leur politique sociale et environnementale, où le travail des enfants est totalement exclu
PRIVILEGIER les échanges équitables en valorisant le conditionnement à la plantation dans le cadre d'échanges équitables

Mais notre engagement se reflète surtout par des actions concrètes menées auprès de nos fournisseurs.
En 2016 nous avons crée des filières FFL pour les filières café Honduras, thé Sri Lanka, cacao Rép.Dominicaine et sucre Brésil.
Une démarche responsable pour s'engager auprès des producteurs dans leurs projets du quotidien:
-mettre en place des projets d'auto entrepreneur générant des revenus supplémentaires
-améliorer les conditions de vie des agriculteurs (acheter un bus, construire une garderie..) et des pratiques agricoles bio
-mettre en place des infrastructures d'accueil pour les enfants des familles d'agriculteurs.

Parce que toutes nos actions, aussi petites soient elles, ont un impact, Destination agira toujours pour minimiser son impact environnemental et entrer dans la communauté des entreprises citoyennes.
