Background

Level Ground Trading trades fairly and directly with small-scale farmers in 10 countries. Our mission is to promote sustainability and well-being through long term trade relationships where fair prices are paid and premiums are invested in producer communities for capacity building. We import coffee, tea, dried fruit, cane sugar, vanilla beans, coconut oil, heirloom rice and spices.

At home in Victoria BC, we send nothing to landfill, pay staff to bike, bus or carpool to work and reclaim empty packaging for local upcycling projects.

Together, we’re building a food system focused on sustainability and well-being. Want to join?
