wholesale Haitian coffee chocolate canada

Wholesale Haitian coffee, art, cacao, chocolate, – Canada

We’ve been building direct market access for Haiti’s small producers for years.

Along with wholesaling Haitian products to the usual suspects (we supply wholesale coffee, art & chocolate to Fair Trade stores, independent cafes, hotels, offices, etc.) — our wholesale fundraising program has helped hundreds of U.S. and Canadian nonprofits to raise thousands:

  • religious groups, nonprofits big & small
  • schools & clubs
  • individuals like parents adopting children from Haiti
  • any passionate person desiring to spread the great word about autonomy (economy) building in Haiti with coffee, chocolate, art
  •  

How it works:   Email us to let us know you’re interested or ready to order.

If you have a facility ground in Haiti (guesthouse, orphanage, boutique), we have a wholesale program in Haiti too.

Most Wholesale Art is too expensive to ship from the U.S. to Canada (sorry).   But if items fit in flat rate boxes (smallish items) and you fill that box, we’ll ship it.

Have a significant art request?  Buy a minimum of $750 U.S. – we’d look into shipping from Haiti to Canada.  Other details apply – call us:  608-721-0622.

We ship retail art to Canada all the time — can be pricey, but we have lots of happy Canadian art customers.  We can’t control if you’ll be charged duty.

It’s all about the shipping, eh?   We’ve done calculations – the biggest bang for your buck = 32 kilo / 60 packages of roasted coffee per box.

Minimum order = 30 bags (but get 60?  Same ship cost).

Buy 120 & costs gets better: second (third, fourth…) box ships ~1/2 price — prices below are estimates for BIG cities in these Provinces.  All Prices in U.S. Dollars :

  • box 1 Ontario = $18.75, box 2 = $9.50
  • box 1 MAR = $22.50, box 2 = $11.25

We’ve been buying Haitian art for years and have a good idea of what sells; we work with the same artists all the time & they’ve come to rely on our relationship (orders).

YES! We ship Haitian chocolate to Canada via USPS flat rate boxes — we pack as full as we’re able because it’s flat rate shipping (your proceeds are maximized when we fill the box).  Traveling to the U.S. or have friends coming to CA?  Save $$$ by letting us ship to a U.S. address – they bring to CA (easy fit in a carry on).

Let us know you want a box of Haitian chocolate.   We’ll send you pricing details.

Haitian coffee is a classic Caribbean – chocolaty with mellow citrus highlights. Fans of Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kona / Hawaiian coffees love Haitian.

Rare, Ethical, Delicious

Creamy Dark : We’re partnering with a Canadian rooster, er, roaster who roasts our Haitian beans perfectly dark (dark shiny beans are great for photos, not for drinking).

Tasting notes : 340 grams of deep, smoky-taste with hints of attractive bittersweet flavors and tinges of lemon.  Creamy dark, rich & smooth.

People drink ground about 60% of the time.  Some groups only buy ground – this is a mistake.  Buy at least 25% whole bean (unless you know for certain your target only wants ground).

We do private labeling (you acknowledge the Rooster on the label) — but it works best for big clients with big sales (5,000 bags a year). It’s a combination of work-flow and inventory management for us.

Over the years we’ve learned this: lots of groups want their own label, spend time and resources creating labels & run out of steam selling coffee. Plus, it’s more expensive – 15 cents more per unit for stickers (you buy 1000 front & 1000 back labels up front) + another 15 cents for us to put them on.

Instead, groups who use the Rooster’s bag hit the ground running & focus on sales. Plus they take advantage of our colorful bag that tells consumers about the need to support small producers. Consumers LIKE that you partner with a social enterprise nonprofit who works directly in Haiti.

  • rooster-bag-backRooster’s back tells a great story that connects w/ consumers.
  • rooster-bag-back-bizstickerA business card size sticker can say a lot about your organization – fits perfectly at the top. Download template. Follow instructions to the letter.
  • rooster-bag-back-bigstickerThe big sticker covers most of the back and can say a lot about your organization. Download template. Follow instructions to the letter.

If you’re big – or anticipate big sales (5000+ bags a year) and you want your own label – Yes. Your graphic person uses this sticker template to create a front & back label then we order stickers & attach to plain/matte stand-up silver pouches. Follow ALL instructions.

You buy 1000 front & 1000 back labels up front; you’ll order 100 bags of coffee, minimum, per order. Those 100 bags are a single roast (medium, medium-dark, or dark).

Even though it’s a private label – we still ask that you acknowledge our partnership. This is a good example of that.

Haitian coffee is organic by default — farmers can’t afford chemical inputs.  Also, part of our mission is environmental stewardship where we’re planting tens of thousands of coffee trees (which hold delicate mountain soil, retain water, prevent run-off) and are training in organic practices.  We’re working towards official certification (costs thousands).

Our Haitian cacao (chocolate bars) is certified organic.

Haitian coffee Farmers earn 66%

Haitian coffee Farmers earn 66%

For each bag of coffee sold, Farmers earn over $3.50 a bag and a coffee tree is planted on deforested mountains. This is significantly higher than fair trade and helps to reverse years of deforestation. Read more about our approach.

The remainder of costs — 34% — pays for export/import, transport to roastery, warehousing, roasting, bagging, shipping coffee.

We’ve created a bunch of cut and paste text + wonderful images you may use in e-news, on your site & for social media (just make sure you link back to the Rooster’s website in your citation and talk about how partnering with us is building a self-sustaining Haiti).

Our wholesale coffee program is growing in Haiti: guesthouses, shops, hospitals, etc.

We far exceeded fair trade values for crops, and we return 100% of proceeds from sales back to farmer communities in the form of agricultural, small business management, and entrepreneurial development activities.

Lots of groups claim to work shoulder-to-shoulder with producers — but most are exaggerations or plain fabrications.  Read more about our work with coffee & cacao farmers in Haiti.

Singing Rooster is a  social enterprise non-profit established in 2009. We partner commercially with small-holder producers to alleviate poverty in Haiti:

  • Agricultural and business consultants
  • Organizers of pre-harvest financing
  • Primary buyers of crops/products at premium prices
  • Product transformation into higher value items (like roasted coffee or chocolate bars)
  • Business guiders, developers, cheerleaders
  • Equitably distributing economic gains
  • Market creators ( this is where we need your help — tell your favorite nonprofit, cafe or grocery store about adding Haitian )

We work with pre-established farmer-owned cooperatives. Haiti is a small place & chances are good your farmers can be folded into one of the groups we’re already supporting.

If you require consulting or technical assistance, we offer those services.  Please complete our inquiry form.

We’re flattered so many have found our model inspiring and hope others  build autonomy in Haiti (through agriculture or whatever means).

We’re a tiny, mostly volunteer based org & simply don’t have time for free consulting.

If you have detailed questions & want to spend time learning about what we do – or you need technical help in Haiti – we do that.
