Advisory Council Member

Solidaridad is an organisation that specializes in working with producers and companies to develop sustainable value chains. In coffee, we have partnerships with farmers and workers in Central and South America and East Africa towards increasing production and income, reducing environmental degradation and enhancing resilience. At the other end of the supply chain, we work closely with roasters, exporters and research institutes to create lasting solutions the challenges faced by the sector to become sustainable.

Statement of support

“Solidaridad is an active member of the Challenge as the initiative has become a space to address structural issues that are stopping the coffee sector to become sustainable. We believe that sustainability can only be reached when supply chain actors find added value on becoming socially and environmentally responsible. If we want to make coffee the first sustainable product, we will need to collaborate, be transparent and avoid duplication of efforts”. Andrea Olivar, International Programme Manager Coffee.
