Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung do Brasil

In 2009, Stockler joined forces with the Hamburg based foundation Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung to establish the new structure of "Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung do Brasil". Based upon the successful implementation of first projects in Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais the new unit is determined to effectively contribute to the promotion of sustainability in the coffee sector of the country by way of project work and cooperation with relevant stakeholders.

Stockler and the Nespresso AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program

Stockler and Nestlé Nespresso S.A. are working together to develop the Nespresso AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program in one of the finest coffee regions of Brazil, the Mogiana. Having begun in November 2007 our "Mogyana" cluster involves more than 500 top quality producers today. Within the AAA Program and cluster, we are also supporting farmers to get Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM.

Since November 2010, we are supporting a group of farmers in another top quality region, the Cerrado. Our sustainability department is consulting producers to become part of the AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program and support them to get Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM.

About the AAA Program

The Nespresso AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program was launched in 2003 togehter with the Rainforest Alliance to help protect the future of the highest quality coffees and secure the livelihoods of the farmers that grow them. The AAA program gives coffee farmers support, training and technical assistance to improve sustainability and productivity while maintaining the highest quality. It involves paying premiums for both quality and sustainability. But the program is about more than paying a premium, it is about building a long-term relationship with coffee farmers.

Originally, the name of the AAA Sustainable QualityTM Program derived from the AA standard, a hallmark of coffee quality found in Kenya and other high quality coffee origins. Nespresso added the third A to represent environmental, social and economic standards.
