Sustainability At Thomson's Coffee Roasters
We are deeply committed to sustainability in all aspects of our business. We recognise that the future of our planet depends on responsible and eco-conscious practices, and we are dedicated to minimising our environmental impact while positively contributing to the communities we serve.
We believe that sustainability begins at the source. We source our coffee beans directly from farmers and trusted importers committed to fair wages, safe working conditions, and environmentally-friendly farming practices. By supporting these communities, we ensure that our coffee is not only of the highest quality but also contributes to the well-being of those who grow it.
We are passionate about reducing our carbon footprint. Our roasting process incorporates energy-efficient technologies, and we continually strive to minimise waste and promote recycling and composting in all aspects of our operation. We also monitor and reduce water usage to conserve this vital resource.
Thomson's Coffee Roasters is dedicated to reducing single-use plastic and minimizing waste. Our packaging is designed with sustainability in mind, utilising eco-friendly materials and encouraging our customers to recycle or repurpose them. We also deliver locally using re-usable buckets. This helps us remove over 10,000 bags per year from circulation
Local Community Engagement
We are proud to be a part of the local communities where we operate. We support various community initiatives, educational programs, and local businesses. Through these efforts, we aim to create a positive and lasting impact on the communities we serve.
Collaboration and Innovation
We actively seek partnerships with like-minded organisations and strive to stay on the cutting edge of sustainable practices in the coffee industry. Collaboration and innovation are fundamental to our commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.
We are a Real Living wage employer and all staff wages are pegged to the Real Living wage rate. This means we ensure everyone is paid above the real living wage, guaranteeing a financially sustainable future for all.
Our journey towards sustainability is ongoing, and while we acknowledge the challenges ahead, we invite our customers and partners to join us in this mission for a more sustainable and prosperous future for all.
