About Level Ground Trading

Level Ground Trading, created in 1997, says on its website (https://levelground.com): 'We shake the hands that farm the land. Trading fairly and directly with small-scale farmers in developing countries.' The company purchases products such as coffee, tea, rice, spices, diverse dried fruit, vanilla beans and more from around the world. They process coffee at and ship their wide range of products from their energy efficient Central Saanich location.

This site visit will give you insight into their ethical business model, the energy efficient choices they have made at their third facility- they outgrew their two previous locations- and see how their state- of- the- art roasting room operates.

Arrive at 5:30 PM to enjoy light refreshments and network with peers at the first professional development event of the Victoria Branch's 2019 - 2020 season.
