Our Social Responsibilities

METAD Corporate Social Responsibility


We Care About the Environment
METAD is at the forefront in utilizing environmental protection methods in relation to coffee wastewater disposal in the wet-processing stage to avoid ground or surface water pollution at our farm processing sites. To maintain our commitment to sustainability, modern farming techniques are employed, such as apiculture (for crop pollination) and intercropping (to maximize the use of land resources). At the METAD Berek Cleaning and Roasting facility, a filtration system has been installed that capture all dust and foreign materials and releases clean air into the environment.

We Care About Our Community
METAD wants to make our community happier and healthier, and takes pride in implementing ethically and socially responsible practices across the entire company.
