The AVIA station chain offers Fairtrade-certified coffee in its new Eat&Go dining concept. The Fairtrade certification system
seeks to improve the situation of small farmers in the global South who grow coffee, among other things. Farmers in Fairtrade

world market. For every pound of coffee sold, they receive a Fairtrade premium for development projects. In addition to
economic issues, Fairtrade places great emphasis on appropriate social conditions – equal rights for women and combating
