Supporting Honduran coffee partners for recovery after hurricanes
Standing in solidarity with coffee planting communities in Honduras, Touton responded positively to the donation appeal launched by COAGRICSAL, Honduran coffee, cocoa, and pepper cooperative. Our financial donation is supporting our partner’s efforts on the ground to quickly relieve thousands of farmers from the devastating combined effect of Hurricanes Iota, Eta and COVID 19.
Touton has been a trading partner of Cooperativa Agrícola Cafetalera San Antonio Limitada (COAGRICSAL) since 2015, offering coffee roasters the distinct quality of organic Honduran coffee beans, certified Fair For Life produced in the Copan region. On top of using modern technology and its own processing plant for the production and marketing of coffee, the certified cooperative is fully engaged in sustainable development and fair-trade processes.

Playing our part to increase transparency in the supply chain: Tier 1 supplier map released
Building a deforestation free supply chain, right from the origins of our cocoa beans, is a key part of Touton’s sustainability approach. This can only be achieved through transparency and traceability of cocoa supply operations which is the rationale for publishing our Cocoa Cooperatives Sourcing Map for Ivory Coast.
The map showcases the name, location, and number of farmers of the Ivorian cooperatives that Touton has sourced its cocoa beans from during the 2019-2020 crop season. The publication of our Tier 1 sourcing information is part of a global cocoa sector effort - from NGOs to Governments and industry players - to map cocoa activities against protected land and forest, in order to better understand and address deforestation issues.

These initial action plans include an overview of activities that go beyond those that we implement on behalf of our clients.
