Nestlé and the FNC work together to benefit Valle del Cauca´s coffee growers

Nestlé and the FNC´s Departmental Coffee Growers Committee of Valle del Cauca are developing, since 2010, the Nescafé Plan in the municipalities of Andalucía, Bugalagrande, Sevilla and Tuluá. Besides supporting growers in improving the productivity of their coffee farms, through crop renovation with resistant varieties to coffee leaf rust, the initiative intends to guarantee the production of high quality coffee.

Héctor F. Cuéllar, Executive Director of the Departmental Coffee Growers Committee, highlighted that in 2011 over 1.200 coffee growing families, of which 800 have renovated their plantations, were benefited by the initiative. “So far this year 630 producers have been benefited. By the end of 2012 we intend to reach 900 producers by improving their income and productivity and by fulfilling the sustainability criteria in social, environmental and economic matters.”
