Statement of support
As a leading global merchant of green coffee, we strive to promote sustainable practices throughout the coffee value chain. As we believe such practices necessarily include carbon-efficient production and farmer welfare, we choose to work directly with coffee growers in the field, supporting them through initiatives that aim to increase their productivity and decrease their climate impact through sustainable practices. Louis Dreyfus Company is proud to join the Sustainable Coffee Challenge, alongside like-minded members who share our collaborative approach to driving improved and sustainable practices in the coffee sector.
