V3 Gourmet focuses on three pillars of sustainability – Craft, Community and Commitment.
The company’s long-term vision is modelled after the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework that is increasingly considered a holistic benchmark for sustainable business practices.
Protecting the environment is at the core of V3 Gourmet — from farming, harvesting, production, processing and packaging, to the way V3 Gourmet operates its retail and F&B establishments.READ more ABOUT craft
Farming is a labour of love. At V3 Gourmet, the processing, blending, flavouring and packaging of our teas, coffees and other foodstuffs is done by entirely by hand, relying on skilled craftsmanship at every level to deliver the V3 Gourmet experience.READ more ABOUT COMMUNITY
To ensure that future generations get to enjoy the same quality foodstuffs we do today, V3 Gourmet commits to taking a long-term perspective — investing in both past, present and future — to build a legacy.READ more ABOUT Commitment
V3 Gourmet partners with farmers, suppliers, distributors, and operators who complement our path and share our desire to leave a positive impact on our environment. We do this by:
- Sourcing directly from farms and plantations in order to ship containers straight from the source, lessoning the freight and carbon footprint of our coffee
- Buying fresh and seasonal ingredients locally from farmers who are within a 100km radius of our restaurants to support communities, improve nutrition and benefit the environment
- Offering our products for sale in bulk, thereby reducing the need for extensive packaging
- Offering collections with Organic, Sustainable, Fair Trade and/or Rainforest Alliance certification
- Using 100% natural flavourings and actively supporting the use of non-GMO raw ingredients in all of our products
- Acting with and committing to integrity in the conduct of business
- Using environmentally friendly packaging made of recyclable cardboard, reusable glass, biodegradable tin and our proprietary commercially compostable tea and coffee bags
