100% COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE COFFEE CULTIVATION
Currently, Nestlé Portugal's coffee factory located in Porto already guarantees more than 89% of its brands' coffee production through sustainable cultivation (after having finished 2019 at 77%).
This factory that produces Nestlé Professional's BUONDI coffee batches is now reinforcing its commitment to achieving 100% cultivated production from responsible sources by 2022.
To obtain this classification it is necessary to guarantee conditions that are based on economic, social and environmental dimensions - which protect not only the planet and the environment, but also the communities of coffee producers. This includes ensuring the traceability of coffee beans to the producer, using agricultural practices that protect the soil and use natural resources efficiently, not contributing to deforestation and fostering biodiversity. In addition, it is also important to guarantee quality training for farmers and producers - in order to improve the productivity and profitability of plantations, and their working and living conditions.
All these criteria are recognised by external entities and validated by independent organisations, such as 4C Services and/or the Rainforest Alliance, which work together with accredited local auditors to assess practices in accordance with established standards.
The 4C – Common Code Association for the Coffee Community – criteria ensure that coffee cultivation does not contribute to deforestation and loss of biodiversity; that good agricultural practices and protection of soil, water and air are used during coffee production; that human and labour rights are respected; and that farmers have adequate training.
