Coffee growing is an intensive process that can have serious effects on the land and environment, not to mention the workers who produce the coffee. We also understand the journey of the coffee we are all part of is a powerful one, and we must live up to our obligation to the planet and our customers.
When you work with Vero coffee, you know that every step is being taken from the very beginning of the process to minimise any environmental impact, starting from the coffee we sell, by only working with the most reputable and innovative coffee roasters.
Lavazza is not only the world’s third largest coffee roaster, but it is also the leader in SUSTAINABLE COFFEE PRODUCTION. It has been voted the top Food & Beverage brand on the Reputation Institute’s Corporate Responsibility Report in 2019, and is ranked ninth among all companies in the world.
Lavazza’s commitment to sustainability is managed through the Lavazza Foundation, which promotes and implements economic, social, and environmental sustainability projects in coffee producing communities across the globe.
Many of the coffee we sell carry sustainable certifications, including BIO-ORGANIC, UTZ and RAINFOREST ALLIANCE symbols. We provide eco-friendly single-serving coffee solutions, reducing landfill of aluminium and single-use plastic.
Over the past few years, we have taken many positive steps to work towards a more circular industry and maximise sustainability. We have implemented the latest inventory management system and adapted new logistic and distribution strategies, invested in new software to help our technical service department to be more effective. All these efforts have helped us to be more efficient environmentally, with less carbon footprint, and reduced paper, packaging, plastic and electricity consumption. We have stopped supplying takeaway cups that aren’t 100% compostable and biodegradable to our customers since 2019.
We are committed to providing businesses in Ireland with long-term and sustainable solutions for all their coffee needs.
