Volcafe provides guidance and support to tens of thousands of coffee farmers through our Volcafe Way programme.
Volcafe works with internationally recognised standards – including our own Volcafe RS Standard – to offer a wide range of responsibly sourced coffees.
The Volcafe RS Standard creates a harmonised approach for sourcing coffee responsibly.
Volcafe Verified is a new baseline for responsibly sourced coffee.
Volcafe Excellence goes beyond the baseline with a focus on deeper impact and higher assurance.
Beyond our own Volcafe RS Standard, Volcafe has extensive experience sourcing coffees through popular sustainability schemes.
Printed calendars offer illustrated guidance on sustainable farming for thousands of coffee growers.
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.
Record temperatures and a new El Niño event necessitate special attention from coffee farmers.
