The Nescafe Plan – A Decade of Progress

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.

NESCAFÉ Plan 2020 Targets 2020 Achievements
Responsible sourcing 70% of total Nescafé coffee supplies to be responsible sourced 75%
Improving livelihoods Improving the quality, quantity and sustainability of our coffee supply chain by distributing 220 million coffee plantlets 235 M

We partner with the Rainforest Alliance to monitor and evaluate the progress of our work in farm economics, as well as social and environmental impact. With this vital data we are able to adapt and improve our work, helping to bring long-term sustainability to thousands of coffee farmers.
