Our commitment: Improve farm economics among the farmers who supply us
Building long-term farming futures
If farms do not generate enough income, they will not attract and retain young farmers. Already, the farming population is ageing, and fewer than 5% of farmers in rural areas are under 35. Improving farm economics and ensuring viable futures for farmers are essential if we are to achieve long-term supplies of safe, quality raw materials.
Progress against our objectives
By 2018: Improve farm economics in seven priority sourcing locations based on the results of the RDF baselines. Farm economics comprises the following four factors on which Nestlé will focus: productivity, quality, costs and price premiums.
We have developed proposed interventions and implementation will begin in 2018.
431 000 farmers trained in good agricultural practices.
