Qualität statt Masse: Spezialkaffee als Ansatz für eine öko-faire Gestaltung der Wertschöpfungskette
AbstractWie lassen sich Wertschöpfungsketten im Zeitalter der Globalisierung ökologisch und fair gestalten? Konventioneller Kaffeeanbau führt gegenwärtig zu ökologischen und sozialen Problemen. Inwieweit kann Produktion und Vermarktung von Qualitätskaffee eine Alternative für Erzeuger und Verbraucher bieten? Aus den Erfahrungen kolumbianischer Kleinbauernorganisationen leiten sich Möglichkeiten und Grenzen dieses Ansatzes ab. -- How can value chains be designed in an ecological and fair way in the age of globalisation? The traditional cultivation of coffee trees is currently triggering ecological and social problems. To what extent could the production and marketing of quality coffee offer an alternative for producers and consumers? The experiences of Colombian crofter organisations help to develop opportunities and limits of this approach.
