Circular Coffee from Peru: creating value across the chain


The projects goals are to promote circular coffee cultivation practices in Peru. By training 1,600 farmers on circular coffee practices and implementation this project introduces circularity principles in the coffee value chain from Peru to the Netherlands. It aims to reduce the use of resources whilst creating an economically viable solution to manage waste material. In addition, this project increases food security by implementing an integral agricultural management system and producing fertil... iser of the organic material which is currently discarded. A last intervention is the creation of a circular coffee fund (CCF). By collecting used coffee grind in the Netherlands and recycling this into useable materials a profit can be made. The profit of this intervention will go into the CCF which can be used as an agricultural loan for farmers in Peru.
