Starbucks Coffee

At Starbucks, we think of it less as 'trading' and more as investing in farmers and their communities. That's why we work to help farmers earn the higher prices that high-quality coffee deserves, which in turn allows them to invest in their land and their families' future. Another way that we support farmers is through investing in alternative loan programmes, which gives farmers who commit to certain social or environmental practices easier access to funds to support their business. To date, we have made $10.5 million in loan commitments to financing organisations that benefit hundreds of thousands of farmers. And while that seems like a lot, we know that there are still many more farms that can benefit from such programmes.
