Our roadmap to create healthier, more sustainable dairy farming.

Every day, millions of people across the world rely on the vital protein and nutrients provided by milk and other dairy products. But dairy farming can be associated with environmental problems like greenhouse gas emissions, as well as issues like animal welfare.

 

That’s why as one of Russia’s largest producers of raw milk, we‘ve been taking action for many years, and since 2018 have made a significant reduction in our carbon footprint per liter of milk produced in our dairy farming operations.

 

However, we know there is still more to do to scale sustainable impact for our people, animals and the planet.

Nespresso recognizes ofi’s coffee teams in Peru and Colombia as strategic partners

ofi’s coffee businesses in Peru and Colombia have been awarded the title of “Strategic Partner” by Nespresso for their contribution to its successful AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program.

 

Nespresso’s AAA coffee sourcing program is designed to ensure the continued supply of high-quality coffee while also improving the livelihoods of farmers and protecting the environment. Its name was inspired by the respected AA standard, a hallmark of coffee quality around the world, with each A standing for one of the program’s three aims: quality, sustainability and productivity.

 

ofi’s field teams support these aims by providing farmers with year-round support and training to produce reliable, sustainable, and traceable coffee.

 

“Today’s consumers want more than just exceptional quality and flavor; they want to know the coffee they buy carries a positive story for the people and environment it came from. Together with Nespresso, we’ve supported over 2,850 coffee farmers across Peru and Colombia so far to meet this demand for coffee that delights on both the sensory and sustainability front. It’s through partnerships like this that we can create real change at scale for people and planet.” Prashant Jalan, Country head Peru for ofi’s coffee platform.

 

The program also contributes to ofi’s 2025 sustainability commitments under Coffee LENS. Launched a year ago, the roadmap sets out targets for improving livelihoods, communities and landscapes by 2025 across ofi’s global coffee supply chain.

ofi and Melitta partner to offer consumers differentiated and fully traceable coffee

An innovative coffee project with selected specialty coffees between ofi (olam food ingredients) and Melitta Europa GmbH & Co. KG – Coffee Division – combines the capabilities of blockchain with other digital tools to meet growing consumer demand for coffee that not only stands out for its aroma and taste but is also traceable - from farm to roaster.

 

“Consumers are increasingly interested in where their ingredients come from, but traceability is notoriously challenging in coffee supply chains because of their fragmented nature. The beans are sourced from smallholder farmers scattered across remote areas and often change hands multiple times before reaching the roaster”. Florian Schmidt, general manager, coffee at ofi.

 

“This is why we’re innovating with our customers to deepen our digital presence on the ground to improve traceability. This benefits both farmers and coffee lovers, who are becoming increasingly quality-oriented and experience-driven”, Schmidt continues.

 

At farm level, ofi sources high-quality lots via it's proprietary smartphone app from smallholder farmers located in the south-central region of Guatemala. It allows farmers to negotiate and transact with ofi directly. Each transaction is tagged with the farm location and date and provides the source data for Melitta’s SAP material traceability tool, using blockchain technology.

 

The sustainability insights platform AtSource adds a layer of transparency for customers. The social and environmental footprint of a coffee purchase can be measured across 100+ metrics, at various stages of the supply chain journey - at farmer group level, through processing and logistics, up to the roaster.

 

For the final consumer, scanning a second QR code on the back of their bag of Melitta Guatemala specialty coffee – like this one for a Guatemala Honey from producer Yoni Garcia - directs them to the unique story of the farmer and processing method behind their coffee.
