Our Communities

We respect farming communities by helping them to prosper. For decades, we have been present in various coffee growing regions, helping local communities and ensuring that families and workers can sustain their activities while improving quality of life.
 

Empowering women, changing lives

Empowering women, changing lives

Nestlé in Kenya and its implementing partner, Coffee Management Services (CMS) have trained over 6,000 women on Financial Literacy; Coffee Production; Coffee Certification; Confidence Building; Self Development and Nursery since inception of the programme in 2011.

Ms Bamba Nihigbe Jeanette is a widow and mother of three. Thanks to her income from coffee farming, she can send her children to school. In 2013, her three-hectare farm harvested 500kg of coffee. With our training, by 2016 she raised that figure to 1300kg, inspiring the community with her success.

Farming in Grandpa’s footsteps

Farming in Grandpa’s footsteps

Eduardo comes from a family of coffee growers and he wanted to become a farmer too – until he lost the coffee buzz and decided to try life in the city. Thankfully, the NESCAFÉ farm school helped him to reignite his coffee passion. Today, he’s farming sustainably and following in the footsteps of his parents and grandparents.

Farmer friends in Thailand

Farmer friends in Thailand

NESCAFÉ agronomists have been working with Thai coffee farmers for decades, enabling higher yields, lower costs and better results. But they’ve also become a part of the community, as friends of farmers and their families. Coffee tastes better when it’s made by good friends.
