SKG Vaering© Corporation operates according to EN 45011 (ISO/IEC Guide 65) in the South and Central America, Hawaii and Africa.

The C.A.F.E. Practices and Preferred Supplier Program ensures that Starbucks sources sustainably grown and processed coffee by evaluating the economic, social and environmental aspects of coffee production against a defined set of criteria, as detailed in the C.A.F.E. Practices Evaluation Guidelines. The evaluation of farmers, processors and vendors against the C.A.F.E. Practices Guidelines is conducted by approved third-party verifiers using a sample-based approach.

These farmers, processors and vendors form the supply chain for coffee production. The program requires that each component of this supply chain meets the minimum economic, social, and environmental requirements of the C.A.F.E. Practices Guidelines.
