Teeccino is devoted to socially responsible values and sustainable agriculture. We measure our success using the triple bottom line evaluation.
Our adherence to our values guides our everyday decisions as well as our long term ones.
Teeccino Caffé is committed to supporting the health of its customers by providing delicious and nutritious beverages, supplements, and foods that contribute to healthy lifestyle habits.
Our Company mission is to inspire and educate our customers to achieve optimal health. We publish educational newsletters and website content that leads to greater understanding about making healthy choices for oneself and ones’ family.
As a corporation, we follow socially responsible business practices with our employees, our vendors, and our customers. We adhere to fair trade principles with all our suppliers whether they reside in Europe and the USA or in the developing countries where we work: India and Guatemala.
Teeccino works in developing countries to create new trade that brings more economic opportunity to disadvantaged people living in rural villages with limited sources of income. Creating new trade contributes to the relief of poverty in developing nations while delivering unique products with greater value for North Americans.
Teeccino is committed to organic agriculture for the health of our bodies as well as the planet. The majority of our ingredients are certified organic. Buying certified organic herbal crops has many challenges including adequate supply from limited sources and impact on cash flow. We are proud of our achievements and continue to work hard to improve our organic status.
Most of Teeccino’s ingredients are tree crops that are both wild harvested and cultivated in orchards. Tree crops sequester carbon in greater amounts than ground crops because there is no disturbance to the soil from harvesting or tilling and their leaves convert CO2 via photosynthesis.
The creation of Teeccino was originally inspired by Caroline MacDougall’s work with communities in Central American rainforests to develop markets for sustainably harvested ingredients that would provide income compatible with rainforest preservation. Our Company commitment to the planet extends to our work with trees and with forest preservation.
Like many companies, we have had to face hard choices between greater profitability versus our organic values. Our commitment to organic wins out despite short-term problems of supply and price increases. We are committed to thinking out the impact of our actions for seven generations and to working hard to make our vision work practically and profitably.
We share a percentage of our sales with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that conduct nutritional and educational programs to benefit women and children in Central America.
Teeccino’s Motto is: Protect the gift of good health!
