Origin Performance & Risk Report: Brazil
The Rainforest Alliance and partners have worked in coffee for nearly four decades. While there are still challenges in the sector, we’ve also seen great improvements. In Brazil, many farms are large and modernized with high productivity. Though incomes are relatively high, many farms rely on expensive and volatile input costs. Our research shows that agrochemical handling and worker safeguards are key issues.
We believe it is important to measure and monitor these key trends to provide a snapshot of what’s happening and where support is needed. Our report includes data from Rainforest Alliance projects and certification with context from external research and observation from Rainforest Alliance experts. We provide this information in a short, simple, and data-packed report for everyone in our alliance to use.
