Coffee trader Volcafe has joined the Cool Farm Alliance as part of the Swiss company’s efforts to assess and reduce the environmental footprint of farms in its value chains across 15 origin countries.
A new project aims to promote sustainable farming and demonstrate that farmers can positively change the coffee-growing landscape.
The partners have built educational facilities for 3,600 young students.
Coffee house Volcafe today launched a new Sustainability Strategy, an ambitious, overarching plan to achieve its vision for a thriving, sustainable coffee business for all.
Volcafe has announced the launch of its enhanced Volcafe Responsible Sourcing programme (Volcafe RS), alongside two Volcafe-managed responsibly sourced coffee designations: Volcafe Verified and Volcafe Excellence. Both Volcafe Verified and Volcafe Excellence have been recognised by the Global Coffee Platform (GCP) as Coffee Sustainability Reference Code (Coffee SR Code) equivalent, 2nd party assurance.
