Rainforest Alliance Initiative



We strive to bring people from all walks of life together, inspiring change while making a difference in our communities. This is our commitment that has been rooted in the belief that we can use our presence and influence to bring about positive change in all communities. That’s why we partnered with The Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM in 2006. They share a mutual vision of a world where people and nature thrive in harmony.

Sowing the Seeds for A Better Tomorrow.

Zavida began a journey of exquisite taste by roasting our first batch of coffee harvested from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms. Our enthusiastic Roast Master prepared a special blend and roasted it by eye. Our team of expert cuppers then decided that the coffee was not only great… it was delightful. Thus, we began our love affair with the green frog seal. Now, over 55% of the coffee we source is harvested from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms and that number continues to grow each year.

Caring for The Land. Caring for The People.

Certified coffee is grown on farms that adhere to strictly controlled use of agrochemicals, where forests are protected, rivers, soils, and wildlife conserved; workers are treated with respect, properly equipped, and their children are given access to education and medical care.


Coffee farms that earn the Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM seal are audited to help ensure that they maintain rigorous environmental, social, and economic standards and are continuing to make improvements. The Rainforest Alliance works with coffee farmers to improve their livelihoods and the health and well-being of their communities. Since 1995, the Rainforest Alliance has strengthened the position of coffee farmers by training them in methods that boost yields and safeguard the health of the land for future generations.
