Day after day,
action after action.
Because the difference that
each of us can make is unique.
We establish a direct, individual and lasting relationship with farmers, with a logic of virtuous cooperation that is based on:
by sharing 80 years of knowledge and business experience with them.
the quality and guaranteeing a profitable price. The only way to make production truly sustainable is to pay farmers properly.
through the creation all over the world of training institutes, associations, awards, digital communities that over the years have contributed to disseminating the culture of coffee in the name of sustainable quality.
Protecting the ecosystem is for us an integral part of the pursuit of sustainable excellence. In addition to encouraging and developing environmentally friendly cultivation practices on plantations, we strive to reduce the impact of the entire production process on the ecosystem. Our commitment begins with producing countries where we promote, through the lectures of the University of Coffee, the dissemination of agronomic techniques with low environmental impact. Furthermore, in Trieste, where the best Arabica beans in the world are transformed into the unrivaled illy blend, we have made huge investments to minimize the environmental impact of processing. A decades-long commitment aimed at achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2033.
Since 2016, on the occasion of International Coffee Day, we have been carrying out the #Thanks4TheCoffee project, in order to pay tribute to our coffee farmers, sending them thank-you messages from consumers. The farmers collect these messages directly from coffee plants, the heart of their work.
We dedicated the first illy symphony to all coffee farmers, to thank them for the precious fruit of their work.
What would happen if there were no women in the coffee supply chain? Half a Cup is the best way to demonstrate this and pay tribute to their work.
We continued to collect thank-you messages from around the world and delivered them in a very special way: bringing them to the farmers' children who then read them to their parents.
We launched the #Thanks4TheCoffee project. We started collecting thank-you messages from consumers in all illy stores around the world and on the illy.com website and delivered them to our farmers. The farmers find these messages on the coffee plants, the heart of their work.
