Coffee rejuvenation model of Nescafe Vietnam

Regional research “Agricultural innovations review in Sub-Mekong region countries” in the framework of the project “Network for Agriculture and Rural Development Think-tanks for Countries in Mekong sub-region” – November 2022 - April 2023.

Nestlé company in Vietnam has strengthened public-private cooperation with partners such as Central Highlands Agro-Forestry Science Institute, Provincial Agricultural Extension Centers, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and other organizations and partners in the rejuvenation of coffee trees in the Central Highlands. The NESCAFÉ Plan program has successfully connected with farmers in the Central Highlands, improved the quality of Vietnamese coffee beans, applied sustainable farming methods, replanted old coffee trees, and increased incomes of farmers, ensuring livelihoods as well as increasing the power of female farmers. At the same time, regenerative agriculture improves soil quality and fertility as well as protects water resources and biodiversity. The improvement of soil quality also helps to increase the ability to absorb carbon gas into the soil, reducing emissions.

The model of "regeneration model of coffee " clearly identifies three main resources as land, water, and biodiversity. This is at the heart of comprehensive restoration efforts. Especially, the most important thing in this model is that farmers must be the center of the model. Farmers are the ones who manage resources and make decisions about activities appropriate to their own particular circumstances. This model not only helps Central Highlands farmers reduce costs, increase productivity, quality, and profits, but also brings greater values in terms of environmental protection. It is reducing chemical use, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, conserving, and restoring agricultural land and ecosystems, bringing great benefits to the environment and society.
