WE HAVE ONE DREAM:
to offer the finest coffee to the world, and bring a smile to the faces of all who drink it.
WE HAVE ONE GOAL:
to promote lifestyles that respect people and the environment and to become Carbon Neutral by 2033, for the 100th anniversary of our foundation.
WE HAVE ONE PHILOSOPHY:
to bring joy to everybody across the world who loves the little pleasures in life, by giving them the finest coffee nature has to offer enhanced by top technologies, sustainable practices, and the search for beauty in everything that we do.
WE HAVE ONE BLEND:
it remains the same throughout time and in every part of the world.
WE HAVE ONE WORLD:
one set of challenges that we can only overcome by working together to protect it.
One day at a time,
one deed at a time.
Because there’s one difference
we can all make.
We maintain direct, long-lasting, one-on-one relationships with our growers, built on a form of mutual cooperation and based on:
sharing 80 years of knowledge and experience in the business with them.
quality and guaranteeing a profitable price. The only way to make production truly sustainable is to properly reward growers.
by setting up training institutions, associations, prizes, and digital communities all over the world. Over the years, these have contributed to spreading a coffee culture that prioritises sustainable quality.
For us, protecting the ecosystem is a key part of the quest for sustainable excellence. In addition to promoting and implementing environmentally compatible farming practices on our plantations, we work hard to reduce the impact that the entire production process has on the ecosystem.
This work begins in coffee-producing countries, where our Università del Caffè gives lessons encouraging the development of agricultural techniques with a low environmental impact. Meanwhile in Trieste, where the world’s finest Arabica coffees are transformed into the incomparable illy blend, we have invested significantly in minimising the environmental impact of processing. These decades of work will culminate in the fulfilment of our new challenge: Carbon Neutrality in 2033.
Each year since 2016, we have celebrated International Coffee Day with the #Thanks4TheCoffee project, showing our appreciation for coffee-growers by collecting thank you messages from consumers and leaving them at the heart of the work: the coffee plants themselves.
We dedicated illy’s first symphony to all coffee growers, to thank them for the precious fruits of their labour.
What would it be like if there were no women in the coffee supply chain? Half a Cup is the best way to represent what would happen, and to pay tribute to their work.
We continued to collect messages of gratitude from all over the world and delivered the thanks in a very special way: by giving them to the children of coffee growers, to read aloud to their parents.
We launched the #Thanks4TheCoffee. In all the illy Caffès around the world and on the illy.com website, thank you messages were collected from consumers before being delivered to the coffee growers at the very heart of their work: the coffee plants themselves.
