Responsibly sourced beans for a sustainable coffee future

The Future is Coffee

Every second, 23,000 cups of coffee is consumed around the world. That’s a lot of coffee. So how do we make sure that our children and their children will be able to enjoy a good cuppa in the future ?

What Responsibly Sourced Means

NESCAFÉ’s responsible sourcing journey starts with the men and women who grow our coffee beans. They’re our coffee heroes, and we’re proud to call them our partner farmers. Our experts visit their farms to pass on innovative sustainable agricultural practices to ensure the future of coffee, helping them earn more, stay healthier and work more in tune with nature. After all, the more naturally and respectfully our coffee is grown, the better it’s going to taste in your cup. Today, 99% of our locally produced beans are responsibly sourced.

    Create biodiversity

    By encouraging bees and other insects, it helps to create greater biodiversity in the coffee-growing regions with our intercropping and agroforestry programmes. Farmers learn how to farm while developing natural diversity.

    Prevent deforestation

    NESCAFÉ is also working towards making coffee farms more productive. The more productive a farm is, the less need for expansion, which goes a long way in preventing deforestation.
