Mars Drinks® Coffee Sustainability Efforts

  • Commitment to sustainability at every stage of our value chain, from raw materials, to factories, to consumables and technologies.
  • 100% of Alterra™ coffee and Bright Tea™ products are sourced from third-party certified farms, often grown by smallholder farmers in low-income communities.
  • Mars Drinks® is a founding partner of World Coffee Research (WCR), a non-profit organization that works with industry professionals, scientists and researchers to improve the world’s supply of high-quality arabica coffees.
  • In 2015 Mars Drinks® joined the Coffee Quality Institute’s (CQI) Partnership for Gender Equity initiative. The Partnership seeks to better understand the effects of gender inequality in the coffee sector and develop ways to support gender integration.
