The Nescafe Plan – A Decade
We are committed to sourcing every cup of NESCAFÉ coffee responsibly, improving the economic and social wellbeing of farmers and their communities, and setting higher environmental standards in our value chain.
We have invested $475 million to date in activities that we believe are essential to making coffee more sustainable. Achieving our initial goals has only marked the beginning of our journey.
