Value Chain

The Guiding Principles of the Business

Ever since the company was founded, Delta has based itself on solid values and human principles which are reflected in the creation of a considerate brand based on the authenticity of our relations with all our stakeholders.

The Guiding Principles of the Business were therefore developed to serve as a management tool with which compliance is vital to the development of a healthy and long-lasting relationship with the stakeholders.

A Coffee For Timor

The "A Coffee for Timor" campaign, geared to the construction of infrastructure and schools for the population, was awarded the Positive Community Impact Award by Social Accountability International in 2003. The intervention in Timor was intended to train coffee producers, place value on Timor coffee, investing in and providing coffee peeling equipment and support for the reconstruction of schools with a view to fostering the sustained development of the communities.

Fair Trade

Delta Cafés supports the execution of protocols with the tertiary sector for the sealing of partnerships and networks of Fair Trade, which guarantee the payment of a fair price to producers and support development projects in the producing communities.

With a view to promoting the marketing of fair trade coffee in Angola, Delta sealed a partnership with the NGO Equação and the joint-venture CTM-Altromercato.

Selected Origins

The performance of Delta Cafés at the source has resulted in products from the "Selected Delta Origins" range accounting for 30% of the coffee certified by the "Rainforest Alliance". This certification ensures farmers comply with standards in relation to the conservation of nature, the main goal being the protection of the ecosystems.

The "Delta Cafés Selected Origins" range is a part of the commitments made between Delta Cafés and the Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Biodiversity, aimed at promoting biodiversity throughout the life cycle of coffee.
