The coffee giant’s recently published Nescafé Plan 2030 Progress Report offers a positive outlook on the state of the farming and growing sector
Nescafé has reported that farmers are gradually adopting regenerative agricultural practices and improving farming yields.
The results are based on an impact assessment conducted in partnership with the Rainforest Alliance.
Nescafé and Rainforest Alliance followed more than 7000 coffee farmers in 14 countries between 2018 and 2022.
Adopted sustainable practices include intercropping, mulching, and integrated weed management.
In 2022, moreover, Nescafé conducted numerous training sessions on regenerative agricultural practice, reaching more than 100,000 farmers in 14 countries from which the coffee giant sources its product.
Philipp Navratil, Head of Nestlé’s Coffee Strategic Business Unit, said: “The Nescafé Plan 2030 Progress Report shows the potential of regenerative agriculture to help make coffee farming more sustainable over the long term.
“We are supporting coffee farmers to make this transition and are giving them the know-how and tools they need to increase yields and income, while helping reduce carbon emissions at the same time.”
