Nespresso announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding with Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park to promote the local coffee industry, as part of the Nespresso’s Reviving Origins program. The program aims to restore high-quality coffee production in regions around the world where it was under threat due to political conflict, economic hardship, or environmental disasters.
Through the implementation of its AAA Sustainable Quality Program, Nespresso will support coffee farmers in the Gorongosa National Park to increase the quality of their coffee, promote sustainable farming practices and agroforestry while improving farmer’s livelihoods through capacity and skills building.
According to the press statement, Nespresso aims to make the new coffee from Mozambique available, as a limited edition, in 2022.
Commenting on this, Jean-Marc Duvoisin, chief executive officer of Nespresso, says, “Nespresso is very proud to start this collaboration with the Gorongosa Project to revive the coffee production in Mozambique. We will work directly with coffee farmers to help establish a high-quality coffee supply that will increase economic opportunities in this region while giving our consumers a unique coffee experience”.
