Antiquated, Exploitative Practices
Broken, unstable and inequitable supply chains harm the environment, unfairly distribute compensation and create inconsistent quality goods.
The Positive Spiral
A successful business doesn't have winners and losers, as choices shouldn't be made among great products, competitive prices, happy suppliers or ethical production. Our model, a cascading spiral, has positive ancillary effects; a force for good that gains momentum the more people it touches.
Choking the Roots- Farmers benefit the least
Farmer/producers are the last to reap the benefits of all their work; the majority of pay is lost to intermediaries.
Inaru’s farmer-first approach enriches producers without middleman and markups, through direct payments to farmers via exclusive contracts. Farmers enjoy a profit share from products made from their beans, directly aligning Inaru’s success with their own.
Environmentally Unkind Practices
Fundamental and historical disregard for the toxic side effects of unsustainable practices.
Investing in and Cultivating Sustainable Practices
Inaru provides farmers in its community cost-free access to tools, resources and training for regenerative production. By processing onshore- the carbon footprint of our products is oceans lighter. Now that is sweet.
Poor Bean Quality/Quantity
Low productivity, disorganized cooperatives, and no incentives to improve quality of fermentation yield low and inconsistent bean quality.
Fine, Premium Products
