NESCAFÉ is the most sustainable coffee brand in the world.
The future of coffee
More than 23,000 cups of coffee are drunk every second, but with so many of us enjoying it, we need to be careful not to be left with empty cups.
Climate change, crop diseases, water shortage and people leaving farms for cities, all threaten the future of coffee. If we want to keep drinking it, we need to plan. That's why in 2010 we setup the NESCAFÉ Plan.
The NESCAFÉ Plan
In 2010, we brought our 80 years of global coffee knowledge to the next level, with one aim: to make sure all our coffee is responsibly sourced.
Read on to find our more about how the NESCAFÉ Plan is helping farmer, farming communities and our planet.
Great tasting coffee comes from the hard work of many people.
We now have 300 NESCAFÉ coffee-growing experts working with farmers in 15 countries, offering training in business and advanced agriculture skills. Since 2010 we have helped train more than 700,000 farmers. In the Philippines alone, we have trained thousands of Filipino coffee farmers.
Securing farmer's incomes
Our experts are teaching farmers how to diversify their income by growing different crops alongside coffee trees. Gaining these new business skills allows farmers to better manage their farms and improve their livelihoods. Not only that, but NESCAFE is also the single biggest coffee buyer in the Philippines.
Continuing to ensure a healthy planet
The NESCAFÉ Plan in action
Already nearly 70% of our coffee is independently checked and responsibly sourced, allowing us to know where it came from and how it was grown. There’s still lots to do, but we’re on track to reaching our target of 100% Responsibly Grown coffee by 2020. We’re leading the way in building a brighter future for coffee.
