In Australia, our coffees are made from 100% responsibly sourced coffee beans, made possible through supporting better working conditions for farm families and workers, and the promotion of sustainable crop growth.
By 2025, NESCAFÉ® aims to reach this milestone globally. For the sustainability program, having thousands of farms across five continents monitored is quite a big task, however at this scale, doing the right thing can make a world of difference.
When it comes to growing coffee, it’s all about the soil. Healthy soil not only helps make farms more productive, it helps to make them more sustainable. Healthy soil can capture carbon, requires less fertilizer, and is more resistant to the impacts of climate change. NESCAFÉ® helps several thousand farmers improve the health of the soil with regenerative agriculture.
It takes more than just coffee trees to grow good coffee. Promoting biodiversity is vital for healthy soil. In Thailand and Indonesia, coffee farmers plant betel nuts, peppers, chilies, and avocados. A greater variety of trees attracts a greater number of insects that pollinate fields and support local wildlife.
More shade reduces the need for herbicides and helps enrich the soil's organic matter through the additional leaves that are shed. Trees reduce carbon emissions, control soil erosion, recycle nutrients and protect watersheds. With more crops grown, farmers can sell more products and provide food for local families. This is all made possible thanks to the biodiversity that we encourage in farming practices.
At NESCAFÉ®, we want to be a force for positive change and we're proud to have made significant steps to source responsibly and deforestation-free, increase biodiversity, and improve soil health through regenerative agriculture. Now, when you enjoy NESCAFÉ®, you can feel even better knowing that your cup of coffee is supporting the coffee world a little better.
