At Cactus we respect everybody and we are mindful of our social responsibility towards people in the third world, producers from the South and all those who are most vulnerable here at home and across the globe.
A socially responsible company
Our support for fair trade is long-standing. Fairtrade coffee first appeared in Cactus stores in 1993.
Nowadays, our supermarket ranges include over 120 Fairtrade food, fabric and flower products. We’re also committed to promoting Fairtrade goods to our customers and employees.
For example, Bruno Bio Fairtrade coffee has been the only coffee to be served in the group’s restaurants, bars, offices and canteens since 2008.
To mark its jubilee, Cactus has donated a giant wooden Yuppi which children can climb inside and explore to the Parc Merveilleux in Bettembourg, run by the Parents Association for Mentally Disabled Children (APEMH).
Children can both play and learn in this new playground which is comprised of two sections linked by a climbing net. On one side there is an elevated platform from where children have a great view out over the dingoes enclosure.
On the other side is the giant 7 metre high mascot, inside which are stairs and an opening onto a slide.
The mascot has been built using top quality tree trunks (false acacia and oak) such as are found in the wild, thereby enhancing the unique character of the playground’s facilities.
