Orangutan Coffee Project

PROJECT

Orangutan Coffee Project, a sustainable project started in 2013 by PanEco Foundation with the cooperation of many big actors of the coffee industry engaged into the Orangutan Coffee Project which main goal is to initiate a sustainable business process aimed at protecting the Orangutans, the tropical forest of Sumatra (an ecosystem rich in unique biodiversity) and to improve the livelihood basis for more than 400 families involved in the coffee project who live in its surroundings.


PanEco Foundation, located in Switzerland has launched several activities inspired by the principle of "Protect and use" based on strategic use of commercial partnerships to finance non profit programs. One of these activities is the Orangutan Coffee Project, in Sumatra. Actually Sumatra's tropical forest not only guarantees the ideal climate for growing an exceptional Arabica coffee but it also represents the natural habitat for some of the few orangutan left on earth whose existence is currently endangered by continuous deforestation activities and increasing agricultural and industrial development. In order to stop the progressive destruction of the rainforest Orangutan Coffee Project supports farmers, and grants both the safeguard of the original forest and the natural habitat of the orangutans. Subsidies and incentives are allocated to those farmers who avoid the use of agricultural chemicals, agree not to clear tropical rainforest to expand their farm land, and commit to refrain from hunting, catching or trading any of protected species. The Orangutan Coffee Project encompasses all phases of the production from the seed to the cup, and brings the coffee to European consumers through the port of Hamburg. The coffee is shipped in Medan and all the project representing a concrete and efficient example of how to find a balance between resources management, the protection of our natural environment, and social responsibility. The Orangutan Coffee from Sumatra goes to Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia and involve about 75 Roasters and by now about 10% of the running costs of the Orangutan Conservation Program are covered by the premiums, which they can pay out of the Orangutan Coffee Project.
