Sandinista! prides itself on taking a strong ethical standpoint in terms of the companies we work with and the food and drink we sell. We take an approach of combining our love of great products with ‘doing our bit’ for the world by stocking Fairtrade Cuban Orange Juice, and Chegworth Valley’s Organic Pressed Cox’s Apple Juice. If you fancy something hot, then rest assured we’ve not forgotten that either. We serve Fairtrade tea and sugar alongside authentic Nicaraguan coffee beans and Green and Blacks Organic Hot Chocolate.
As you may already know, we’ve been boycotting Coca Cola since 2004 because of its insidious corporate dealings and as of 2007 we decided to take a similar stance against Bacardi. We began our boycott of any Bacardi owned products due to their immoral corporate dealings with the likes of Havana Club and their appalling treatment of people in the third world. (See our Campaign page for the full stories)
We also refuse to sell any products from a country that refuses to ban whaling (Japan, Norway & Iceland) … grrrr, bad, bad people…
We hope you appreciate our “right-on” actions/views (but don’t get carried away and chain yourselves to the bar or ‘ought), and if you have any views and/or questions, please email us or become our friend at our facebook page.
