More about suppliers
When we start a conversation with a supplier, we are always thinking five years down the line. A relationship frequently starts with a sample we receive at the office, or a conversation at a trade show, or a friendly encounter at origin. Either way, if the quality has potential, the conversation will quickly move from the current crop to long-term plans and don't be surprised when we show up at your doorstep to talk more seriously! FTA and OLAM have Coffee Traders traveling to origin almost every month. With that said we also understand the need for short-term support and can help out here, too. Read on to learn more about how we view long-term stability and shot-term support as well as how to submit coffee samples if yo are interested in building a relationship with us..
What long-term stability means to us: Integrity and customer focus are part of our core values. This means we strive to provide a consistent, fair market our supplier customers year after year. Whenever we start a conversation, we are thinking five or more years down the line.
How we can help provide long-term stability: We understand your volumes and quality can change year to year. We work directly with hundreds of coffee roasters that have a variety of needs, which means we can confidently find the right market for your coffee year after year.
What short-term support means to us: Did you have a bumper crop, or did a deal fall through at the last minute? We understand these needs as well and can usually lend a hand.
How we can help provide short-term support: We have a large first hand roaster network across our global marketing offices and even greater reach via our online market. We prefer to talk long-term, but if you need short-term support, we can help here, too.
