Like many “check-off” programs in other commodity industries, Grounds for Health’s Penny per Pound program provides an opportunity for those in the coffee industry to support our work via the day-to-day business of coffee.
Roasters that buy coffee through participating importers can opt to add between 0.5¢ and 1¢ per pound to the purchase price. Importers will calculate donations on a quarterly basis and send the contribution directly to Grounds for Health.
“We strongly support programs that provide better opportunities throughout the supply chain for women,” says David Griswold, president of Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers. “This project will make a strong positive impact on women at origin, and we’re happy to be part of it.”
A Team Approach. To build momentum behind this program we are encouraging importers to match the donations of their roaster customers.
