Having a strong presence at origins allows us to develop direct relationships with producers and have a better understanding of their needs. After decades of working closely with coffee farmers, Mercon, our parent company, designed a sustainable program to increase productivity through environmentally and socially conscious practices.
Through LIFT, comprehensive onsite training and technical assistance is provided to small farmers. This allows them to have a higher production, better yields, improved quality, and a better livelihood overall.
The program welcomes new producers every year who go through a complete training program on the three pillars of LIFT:
These training sessions, provided by a technical team, include coffee plant physiology and nutrition, protection and recovery of water resources, farm and pest management, and financial literacy—among many other topics
The technical team is equipped with tablets to digitally capture and monitor each producer’s improvement and advancement directly from the farm.
