Sustainability and Ethics
SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICS
Based in the historic coastal town of Whitby on the tip of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, it’s impossible for the team at The Baytown Coffee Company not to be environmentally aware. We are conscious that we must do our utmost when it comes to important things like reducing plastic waste.
Read on to find out more about our sustainability goals, company ethics and the work we put into our local community to bring people together.
We’ve spent time planning, designing, and testing the packaging we use for delivering great coffee to our Baytown customers.
Our coffee bags are now recyclable to help reduce our carbon footprint. You just need to take the label off and pop them in your household recycling bin.
We always ship with ‘reduced excess packaging’ – meaning we won’t pad out your boxes with unnecessary bumf.
SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
Our Baytown Beach Clean, every April brings local families together and helps tidy up our local beach. We're a dedicated and trusted supplier to dozens of independent coffee shops and eateries across Yorkshire and the UK, the Baytown Coffee Company is a true supporter of local communities and maintains a family-orientated, positive outlook.
ETHICAL TRADING STANDARDS
We ‘could’ order our coffee from an unknown, faceless corporation based purely on the weight of each bean but that would be ethically and morally troublesome for the family behind the Baytown brand.
Instead, we believe in supporting small, independent businesses, whether they operate from the Guaxupé region of Brazil or the Antioquia and Huila districts of Colombia.
At Baytown Coffee, we believe in paying a fair value for our raw materials, with coffee bought from independent farmers at higher-than-average value and longer-term contracts, that reduce the stress and worry for small overseas farms that are wholly dependent on trade with UK based roasteries.
We only work with farmers who produce the finest quality coffee beans and abide by traditional values when it comes to supporting the environment and investing in the future of their local communities.
