From BBC News:
Price increases and sales of Nespresso coffee have helped Nestlé to report record net profits in 2005. …Sales of the high margin Nespresso coffee rose an underlying 36.2%.
Nespresso is the espresso pod division; one of the pod varieties, Volluto, is “the first NESPRESSO 100% AAA Sustainable Quality coffee, independently verified by Rainforest Alliance,” according to the web site. The Sustainable Quality Program sources green coffee via defined sustainability and quality criteria, although roughly outlined, the specific criteria do not appear on the Nespresso web site. It does say,
If farms are found to be falling short on certain practices such as improper child labour, deforestation and the misuse of dangerous agrochemicals they will not qualify for the program. For other farms a clear plan will be drawn up together with the grower towards the pursuit of sustainable quality and these farmers will become partners of our AAA Program and supply Nespresso with their coffee.
This sounds like only egregious violations prohibit entry into the program, and other farms qualify as long as they are pursuing whatever sustainability guidelines are provided by Nespresso. Nothing about Fair Trade.
