This agroforestry approach will improve soil fertility and productivity of coffee farms
Multimedia with summary
A total of 200 000 trees have been planted by Nespresso and partner Pur Projet in Ethiopia and Guatemala since the beginning of the year to benefit over 600 local coffee farmers. This agroforestry initiative, part of the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program in coffee producing countries, is meant to improve soil fertility and productivity of coffee farms by providing shade for coffee trees and prevent landslides on community land. These new trees will also provide income diversification to farmers through the sales of fruit and timber.
