We lead you towards sustainable coffee

For over 140 years, Beyers Koffie has meticulously combined coffee beans from various origins into excellent blends. We do this with respect for tradition, expertise and care. But most importantly, we source our coffee with a vision for the future.

We are leading the way to sustainable choices. As a full-service coffee provider, we guide you towards the best option for your brand, answering the demands of today's consumers.

Sustainable coffee from bean to cup

Independent third parties have certified our coffees for their sustainability. Amongst the most famous labels, there are Rainforest Alliance, BIO, and Fairtrade. These labels prove our coffee solutions are sustainable - from bean to cup

Due to supply chain disruptions, we are currently unable to source enough certified coffee for our own brands Beyers, Metropole, Café Deluxe and Fortisimo, as well as for the brands we operate as manufacturing party, with the Rainforest Alliance seal. This means that these products currently contain only 70% Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee ingredients. We apologize for the inconvenience. As soon as this supply shortage is resolved, we expect to return to sourcing from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms for these products. You can find more information  here.

Sustainable coffee in sustainable packaging

We care about coffee and also about the materials we use to pack your precious roasts in. The choices at Beyers for types of packs are numerous, and they follow the latest developments in technologies and techniques available on the market. From recycle-ready to compostable, from capsules to foils, we are sure we have a solution available that fits your needs.

We offer a wide series of options and lead you to the most sustainable choice, but some things are standard. For instance our paper: All corrugated boxes at Beyers have the FSC label, and the duplex boxes which we use for packing the Nespresso™ compatible capsules in are PEFC certified.”

Farmer connect

Connected with our coffee farmers

Through Farmer Connect, we help coffee farmers connect with the supply chain. Through the Farmer ID app, they can receive loans, share information about their coffee beans, and connect with end consumers.

When you scan the QR code on your pack of coffee, you can trace your coffee, all the way back to the farmer who produced your coffee beans.

You can even thank your farmer for growing and harvesting your coffee. Farmer Connect is built on blockchain technology and powered by IBM. It brings a first-class experience to end consumers – because, as we all know, seeing is believing.

A carbon-neutral coffeeCO2-neutral

Coffee requires specific environmental conditions to thrive. With global warming, coffee harvests increasingly experience challenges.

We also actively measure and reduce our emissions. What we can't get rid of, we compensated to neutralise our impact on the environment.

Beyers Koffie chooses to play a pioneering role in sustainable coffee. We advocate for making CO2-neutral coffee the norm.

Climate Neutral Group logo

  • The CO2 emission for Beyers' operations are compensated, since 2014
  • Beyers' complete product portfolio is produced with CO2-neutral labelled coffee, since 2015
  • We are leading our customers to sustainable choices by offering the widest variety of certifications, with a series of retail and out-of-home brands transferring towards CO2-neutral labelled coffee
  • All of the above initiatives are compensated through the Gold Standard climate project in the South. This is granted by a third-party certification body and also externally audited.

For our coffee with the ‘Climate Neutral Certified’ label, the CO2-Footprint is calculated from plantation to shelf. We have ambitious reduction targets which result in reduction measures and we compensate the remains with Gold Standard certified projects in the South. All these steps are verified via an independent Certification Body Preferred By Nature. Our goal is to reduce carbon emissions with 25% reduction by 2030.

Gold Standard looks at how CO2 is managed and takes care of the local communities' social-economic impact, by looking at, for example, employment.

And there is more

Plenty of initiatives, large and small, are up and running at Beyers to continuously push towards a more sustainable future.

  • Since January 2009 we only source electricity from renewable sources.
  • In 2012 we replaced one of our roasters with a more energy-efficient one, including heath-recuperation technology.
  • We chose to start producing its own Nitrogen on-site in 2015, avoiding daily truck traffic for delivering liquid N2 to the roastery.
  • We stimulate green mobility by promoting bike leasing for commuters and are increasing the share of hybrid vehicles in the Beyers fleet at a fast pace.
  • All sanitary water used at Beyers in Puurs-Sint-Amands is purified on-site.



At Beyers Koffie, sustainability and innovation are embedded in our DNA. Our sustainability commitment is one of the many ways that we are taking coffee further.

Our 2023 Sustainability Report brings this story to life. In this year's edition, our responsible sourcing program, IMPACT, takes center stage, with highlights and updates from our work around the globe towards the five IMPACT responsible sourcing goals: Deforestation, Carbon Emissions, Regenerative Agriculture, Human Rights and Living Income. 

2023 was a benchmark year for sustainability at Beyers Koffie. From expanding our responsible sourcing network, to continuing work in improving packaging efficiency and recyclability, through to announcing that we are building the first industrial-scale, fully electric, zero-emissions coffee roasting line, our projects and programs are improving lives throughout the supply chain. We are excited to share our journey with you.
