We were established in 2011 from a place of passion and ethical frustration. Our practices today reflect our founding values and contribute to the bigger picture.
At Dear Green our core values were never decided upon by a 'Corporate and Social Responsibility' statement, instead they have been engrained in our everyday practices from the very start. This is all thanks to the experiences, beliefs and standards of our founder and the team who have been hand picked to grow our business. From humble beginnings as a start up we are now positioned as a business that we believe can be a force for good! We're all about quality coffee and excellent customer service but we keep it real with solid ethical practices. Here's how:
Maybe if we had been treated well by our past employers, we wouldn't have started a company! Based on some terrible previous employment experiences we have always done everything we can to ensure our team are never underpaid, undervalued and discriminated against. We have open conversations about career progression within the team, provide education and training and we've never hired anyone to work on less than the Real Living Wage. We care about our staff and in turn they care about our customers! #teamdeargreen
