We are stunned and appalled by the war against Ukraine and the tragedy it has caused. Our thoughts are with all the victims in the region and the millions of people who have been forced to leave their homes by the war.
Right from the beginning of the war, we have supported relief organizations such as the Red Cross with donations in cash and in kind from our headquarters in Germany. Our branches in neighboring countries are also helping out with cash and in-kind donations as well as local assistance.
Furthermore, we have not delivered any coffee to Russia since the beginning of the war (we did not offer any other products there). We have stopped the roasting of Tchibo coffee by our contractor in Russia. We have terminated our marketing activities and online presence. The supply of coffee to the majority of our retail customers has also been stopped. At this time, our Russian company is only selling off existing stocks.
