Discover how NESCAFÉ is more than just your favourite coffee


A bold or delicate coffee experience that's actively working on our carbon reduction journey.

Let us show you the origins of NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND

More and more of us want to know where our cup of coffee comes from, how it's made and its sustainability credentials. Which is why we are excited to be able to share our NESCAFÉ GOLD BLEND Origins journey with you.

And we're working with a number of partners along the way. So wherever you see these symbols, you know that our carbon footprint has been checked, measured and certified by the global climate consultancy, Carbon Trust.

We conducted a Life Cycle Assessment to measure our carbon footprint and this is where our reduction journey has started. Since 2018, we've been working to use our coffee beans more efficiently, whilst keeping the taste you love.  

It'll be challenging but we're fully committed to further reductions in the coming years. For example, we aim to increase recycled materials as well as work on more planned actions.

Discover our sustainability initiatives

Here is how we are making our Origins coffee range more sustainable.


Planting trees

Many of the coffee growers we work with don't just plant coffee trees. With our partners, FNC (Colombia Coffee Farmers Federation), we have started a new initiative with Colombian coffee farmers to plant hundreds of thousands of native trees that will support biodiversity around the farms, help limit soil erosion and aims to reduce our carbon footprint.

Improving soil health

With our partners, OFI (Olam Food Ingredients), we work closely with farmers in Brazil to nurture the soil in which our coffee trees grow. We use detailed soil health analysis to understand what the soil of each farm needs. Then we create a unique solution (with the farmers) to manage the nutrients for better soil protection & fertility.
