Keurig has partnered with Heifer Internacional in Chiapas, Mexico since 2008. Our newest collaboration, Chiapas Coffee Matters, supports coffee farming families to improve coffee productivity, adopt climate-smart agricultural practices and diversify farm production.
Heifer is helping members of the CESMACH (Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas) coffee cooperative diversify their sources of food and income and reduce their dependence on coffee for their livelihood.
Also, Heifer´s environmentally-focused, agroecological methods naturally work to promote both the conservation and preservation of natural resources in the mountainous highlands of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, the protected ecological zone where these communities are located.
Heifer´s unique approach to seasonal hunger in coffee communities is proving to be an effective sustainable method towards a secure livelihood all year long, and for years to come.
