What is regenerative farming?
Did you know that typical farming systems will deplete nutrients from the soil, making it harder and harder to grow coffee or other crops year after year?
Regenerative farming is the practice of repairing land to produce sustainability for a long period of time. Knowing coffee is highly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, we are focusing on regenerative farming practices to make the land more resilient and build a more resilient farming system to withstand the climate changes.
Together, Javy and Raíz Sustainability® focus on partnering with farmers in profitability, social well-being, and environmental stewardship. By following a continuous improvement philosophy, the program gives farmers access to a support system and premiums from the first day they sign a commitment to work towards 100% compliance with Raíz Sustainability® 's 118-point sustainability standard. As of 2020, 67% of Raíz Sustainability® farms are utilizing renewable energy, every farm is using at least two water protection practices on average, and 100% of farms are deforestation free and meeting all mandatory social compliance measures.
Javy is thrilled to support and lead the way for higher standards of sustainability across the coffee industry, including our consumers in every part of our journey to a better and happier home for all of us.
