Since our founding in 1966, Peet's has been deeply committed to sourcing the highest quality coffees and teas so that our customers receive nothing but the world's best. We know that mission begins with the relationships we have with suppliers around the world, and we truly value our long-lasting partnerships. We believe that every person working in the coffee and tea supply chain should be treated with respect and dignity, and receive equitable treatment under the law in their country.
Recently, the state of California passed the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act with the purpose of ensuring that companies like ours disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains. To that end, we have required our coffee and tea suppliers to certify:
- They are not using any form of forced, indentured, bonded or prison labor
- They are not using any slave labor and do not permit human trafficking in their supply chains
- They are not using any materials that are manufactured or produced by any form of forced, indentured, bonded or prison labor
Our purchasing team is trained on the issues of human trafficking and slavery, and a process is in place to enable reporting of non-compliance. Peet's is committed to ethical business practices and will not knowingly conduct business with suppliers who do not comply with the fair, ethical and legal treatment of workers.
At Peet's we are committed to sourcing and selecting the highest quality coffees and teas, roasting our coffee by hand and delivering it fresh from the roastery, and providing the highest level of service to our customers. At every step in this process, our company values guide us. For more information on Peet’s socially responsible business practices, please visit the Sustainability section of this website.
