At Dunkin’ Donuts, coffee leadership is more than just serving a great-tasting, high quality cup of coffee. We care about supporting efforts to source coffee sustainably, in a way that makes a positive impact on the coffee farming community throughout the world.
For many years, we have worked closely with organizations like the Rainforest Alliance to source sustainably and support efforts to protect coffee forests, help to ensure farms meet environmental standards, and benefit and empower the coffee farmers. Yesterday, we announced that we will continue to fulfill our commitment to coffee farmers and to sustainable sourcing by expanding our collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance. By the end of 2016, all Dunkin’ Donuts espresso beverages served in the United States and in approximately 15 international markets will be made exclusively with 100% espresso beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms.
We have invited Alex Morgan, Director of Markets Transformation for the Rainforest Alliance, to author a guest blog post about its impact on coffee farming communities worldwide.
