A plan for the planet​

In August 2010, we launched the Nescafé Plan, a project that reinforces Nestlé's commitments to the sustainable cultivation, production and consumption of coffee. The Nescafé Plan is a series of objectives that will help optimize our coffee supply chain

“Grown Respectfully” to grow sustainably.

Local farmers are the soul of quality coffee. Unfortunately, conditions like climate change, plant disease and rural exodus have threatened their community’s livelihood. Grown Respectfully puts farmers first

Strong partners make us stronger ​

In life, and in coffee procurement


Our partnership with Coffee Assurance Services (CAS) ensures that our coffee is sourced responsibly and in compliance with the internationally recognized 4C code for sustainable coffee production. ​


The Rainforest Alliance is a strategic partner for us as we continue to expand our “Grown Respectfully” program. We jointly developed a monitoring and evaluation system so we can continuously evaluate our sustainability impact in growing regions. ​

90% of the world's coffee needs for NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® came from responsible procurement. Our ambition is to procure our entire coffee volume responsibly in the future. ​

Growing how we grow

We will expand and speed up the distribution of new high-yield varieties that could triple or quadruple yields. With the well-being of farmers and their communities at the forefront, we are decreasing the need for more farmland while encouraging farmers to venture into crop diversification and enable reforestation.


We provide farmers with customized training content specific to their local needs. Over 76,000 farmers have been trained in agricultural best practices since 2010.


Since 2010, more than 30 million high yield plants have been distributed to local farmers. We continue to research new coffee varieties that have the potential to greatly increase yields.
