Our Commitments

100% Responsibly Sourced Coffee

Update

November 2020

To KDP, responsibly sourced coffee is coffee grown and sold in adherence to a credible, sustainable sourcing program that aligns with our Supplier Code of Conduct. To date, these programs have included Fairtrade International, Fair Trade USA, Rainforest Alliance and Utz. We recognize the investments farmers have already made in committing to sustainable production via these programs, which is why we have chosen to partner with them. KDP's responsibly sourced purchasing practices, coupled with our farmer support programs, help build sustainable supply chains for our business.

We have a deep-rooted commitment to engaging with our coffee supply chain on complex, long-term issues impacting farming families, such as low productivity, climate change, price volatility, food insecurity and lack of access to credit and farming materials.
