Enveritas

The majority of smallholder coffee farmers lack access to high-value markets for sustainable coffee. They are excluded not necessarily because their practices fall short of sustainability standards, but because the economics of verifying their activities are more challenging. Their farms are smaller, they are not organized into groups, their supply is not aggregated consistently, and they live in harder-to-reach places.

Enveritas aims to help coffee farmers participate in a globally sustainable coffee industry (social, environmental, and economic), with a focus on smallholders.

Enveritas provides producers with free verification of their sustainability practices, using a range of tools, from geospatial analysis to on-the-ground observations—in order to offer assurance and insights with high levels of confidence.
