Regenerative agriculture to restore ecosystem
Regenerative agriculture for sustainable coffee farming
In Thailand, we value regeneration of ecosystem biodiversity in every step of our production. NESCAFÉ has initiated Grown Respectfully Initiative to encourage regenerative agriculture along with conservation of resources needed in coffee farming and production in 5 main coffee-producing provinces of Thailand, i.e., Chumphon, Ranong, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, and Chanthaburi. The project begins with process of research and development of coffee seedlings before distributing them to the coffee farmers. Additionally, we provide the farmers with training in utilizing farming resources such as water stewardship and waste management, maintenance and restoration of soil fertility, and etc. This also includes monitoring and evaluation of continuous changes to help improve livelihood of the farming communities, develop better coffee beans, and create sustainable raw material sourcing process.
