Starbucks is member of the Cool Farm Alliance

End of last year, Starbucks Coffee Company joined the member community of the Cool Farm Alliance and has since strengthened the Alliance by being active in various working groups and projects around dairy and perennial crops. The membership fits the longstanding strategy of the company.

Since 1971, Starbucks Coffee Company has been committed to ethically sourcing and roasting high-quality arabica coffee. Today, with more than 30,000 stores around the globe, Starbucks is the premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world. Through our unwavering commitment to excellence and our guiding principles, we bring the unique Starbucks Experience to life for every customer through every cup.

Starbucks set a commitment to reduce our carbon, our water, and our waste footprints by half by 2030 and dairy is a big part of the solution. Joining the Cool Farm Alliance will support our ambition to measure and reduce the environmental impact within our global supply chain. As a company that works with the farming community every day, our mission is to partner with farmers and industry to advance sustainable dairy.

Daniella Malin, Head of Impact and Collaboration at the Cool Farm Alliance says: “With their Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices work and catalyzing roles in multiple industry platforms, Starbucks has long stepped up to show leadership where it is needed most. We’re honored and delighted that Starbucks has chosen to bring that leadership to the pre-competitive, industry collaboration initiatives of the Cool Farm Alliance.”
