Since its founding in 1933 in the city of Kobe, UCC Ueshima Coffee Co. Ltd has developed business in all sorts of coffee-related fields as the leader of Japan's coffee industry.
In 2008, UCC began purchasing coffee from Conservation Coffee sites in Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica. Through its purchase, UCC provided support to CI and its partners to work with coffee farmers to implement more sustainable cultivation practices and conserve the rich natural landscapes surrounding their farms. Today, UCC continues to provide support to CI’s work around the world and promote the importance of incorporating conservation into coffee production to its customers through on-product messaging.
