GCP Snapshot 2021


New report shows eight leading coffee companies’
increase in sustainable coffee purchases

BONN, GERMANY. (30 August 2022). A new report, GCP Snapshot 2021, from the Global Coffee Platform (GCP) has revealed growth in sustainable coffee purchases of eight of the sector’s leading roasters and retailers. The GCP Snapshot 2021 is the result of a transparent and pre-competitive approach from the participating companies, representing a strong commitment to addressing coffee sustainability challenges collectively. The new publication provides insights on the sustainable coffee purchases of JDE Peet’s, Melitta Group, Keurig Dr Pepper, Nestlé, Strauss Coffee, SUPRACAFÉ, Tesco and Westrock Coffee, all of whom have committed to disclosing their responsible sourcing progress using aligned, comparable metrics.

According to GCP, the eight leading coffee companies have taken exemplary public action by transparently sharing their sustainable coffee purchase volumes in the new report, published on Tuesday.

“Over the past four years, innovative Collective Reporting of Sustainable Coffee Purchases from prominent coffee companies in GCP’s Snapshot has provided transparent information showing the sector how increases of sustainable coffee purchases are expanding the global marketplace for sustainable coffees,” said GCP Executive Director, Annette Pensel

“As regulatory, financial and reporting environments continue to evolve, GCP Snapshot partners are providing substantial leadership, actions, and impact to foster increased production and consumption of sustainable coffees throughout the world.”

Highlights of the GCP Snapshot include data on the increasing share of sustainable coffee purchases as reported by GCP Members for 2021, climbing up to 1,254,141 MT (55% of total received green coffee – a relative increase of 29% compared to 2020). The report also presents the breakdown of purchases per participating company, as well as a feature on companies’ sustainable coffee purchases according to sourcing regions. Moreover, it offers insights into origin diversity (sustainable coffee purchases received from 33 coffee producing countries), and the shares of sustainable coffee purchased according to different GCP-recognized sustainability schemes.

“While important work is underway, even bolder individual and collaborative efforts are needed to achieve transformational change that results in economic viability of sustainable coffee farming and a living income for producers and workers while preserving nature and addressing climate change, effectively,” says Pensel.

“We’re excited by the progress made and look forward to welcoming more roasters and retailers reporting in the next GCP Snapshot.”
