We Create Drinks that are Good For The Planet and the Communities They Come From
FLAVIA® is part of Lavazza, a family-run company that is as passionate about creating a better world as we are about delivering the perfect drink for each moment of your workday.
Lavazza was top-ranked food & beverage company for Corporate Social Responsibility in 2019 and 9th across all global companies1. With our parent company, we work toward “A Goal in Every Cup," prioritizing key sustainability goals that are particularly relevant to our business and include areas where we can make the greatest impact. At Lavazza Professional, we look beyond the economic bottom line. We are here for people, for the planet, and for the purpose of creating the best world we can through every cup. How? By prioritizing key sustainability goals during each step of the drink creation process—from origin to office, farm to cup.
WE START AT THE SOURCE
…and take care of our farming communities
Almost 80% of all drinks we sell are third-party certified by Rainforest Alliance, one of the leading sustainability certifications in the industry. But we don’t stop there...
Lavazza associates work yearly with one of our coffee or tea farming communities on a project to better their livelihoods and increase their capabilities.
WE THOUGHTFULLY MANUFACTURE OUR FRESHPACKS
…at our LEED Gold Certified Facility
Our FLAVIA system is designed for high coffee extraction in each Freshpack, so you need less coffee to make the perfect cup.
That translates to 200,000 gallons of water and 850 car miles saved compared to Bean-to-Cup systems with our FLAVIA® C500 brewer.2
AND THEN OUR DRINKS REACH YOU, READY TO BREW
…but our sustainability efforts don’t end there
