In 2001, we joined forces with four other family owned European coffee companies to set up International Coffee Partners (ICP). A non-profit initiative, ICP’s purpose is to finance and implement development projects in coffee growing countries to improve living conditions for farmers. So far, we’ve launched 19 projects in 11 countries, which have had a positive impact on more than 25,000 coffee growers and their families.
The projects improve the competitiveness and living conditions for small-scale coffee farmers. On our trips, we can see with our own eyers that the work is giving results. We also run development projects that closely linked to the global climate challenges, Coffee & Climate.
