Is Kauai Coffee part of the Fair Trade Movement?Updated a year ago

Alternate:

While our 100% Hawaiian coffee is Fair Trade USA certified, being a 100% USA product, Kauai Coffee Company is not part of the Fair Trade Movement. All of our coffee is grown under working conditions that are held to the same standards as the rest of the United States. The employees of Kauai Coffee Company have the distinction of being amongst the highest-paid coffee workers in the world. Our employees receive a full range of benefits, including medical, dental, and retirement benefits for themselves and their families.

All of our 100% Hawaiian coffee is traceable to its orchard of origin on our farm. All of our coffee is “cupped” at 3 different stages of production to ensure the highest quality and consistency. Samples are cupped from, (1) each dryer batch of coffee produced, (2) each lot of coffee that is “milled” and, (3) each roasting and packaging run.

Our coffee is inspected and double-graded first by us, then by the Hawaii State Department of Agriculture to certify grade quality and origin.
