Coffee Fundraiser Changes as Coffee Prices Rise

Arabica coffee prices are at a 34 year high resulting in much higher prices for Fair Trade organic coffee. Nectar of Life Coffee responds by not raising prices of their coffee fundraiser.

Online PR News – 14-May-2011 – – Spokane, Wa - In response to the increasing prices for green Arabica coffee Nectar of Life Organic Coffee Company, has announced a change to their Coffee Fundraiser - . "Coffee

prices are at a 34 year high, resulting in our cost for certified Fair Trade organic coffee trippling over the last year," said Martin Jennings, founder and Co-Owner of Nectar of Life Organic Coffee Company


"Our coffee fundraiser is an excellent vehicle for organizations to raise money. Traditionally, we have sold our organic coffee with a private label to non-profits and schools for below wholesale cost. Due

to our increased cost we decided to reduce the package size, but keep the cost the same," said Jennings.

Nectar of Life will now provide 10 oz bags of organic Fair Trade coffee at below their normal wholesale price. Previously, Nectar of Life provided 12 oz bags at this low price. They recommend the same

retail price which may result in a near 100% profit for the fundraising organization.

When asked why organic coffee is such a successful method to raise funds for an organization Jennings responded, "We fresh roast all the coffees after the order is placed. Most people have never tasted

coffee that fresh. In addition to the high quality of our fairly traded, organic coffees, we offer organizations a private label option. They can use their school, or company logo to really personalize

their fundraiser."

Nectar of Life Organic Coffee Company has kept their fundraiser pricing consistent over the past 5 years. They provide interested organizations with fundraiser materials including order forms and

information about Fair Trade coffee.
