Our Commitments


Working toward a sustainable future requires action both at home and abroad — and S&D is fully committed to making a positive impact on our local community, our environment and the planet at large. That’s why we’ve worked hard to build transparent, collaborative relationships with farmers and suppliers to help strengthen the economies of the world’s growing regions. We’ve also reduced our carbon footprint, invested in greater community development and provided key educational assistance to our employees and their families.

Our Commitment to Coffee

In all the years we’ve been doing business in our hometown of Concord, North Carolina, we’ve never wavered from our focus on true quality and superior service — and that starts with offering our customers only the best coffee. Today, our extensive line of specialty coffees, proprietary blends, single-origin selections and flavored options gives customers more choices than ever. And with offerings like Fair Trade Certified™, Rainforest Alliance and the non-profit Coffee Kids® line, S&D is making it easy to do good with every cup.

Current Partnerships

Overcoming the industry’s most pressing challenges takes teamwork. That’s why S&D has implemented a formal external engagement strategy that puts our experts in direct collaboration with key stakeholders from across the environmental spectrum. Together through various organizations and partnerships, we’re addressing the issues that matter most to those impacted by the coffee industry at all levels.
