Samantha Veide Global Director, Corporate Sustainable Solutions MARS DRINKS

Meet Miguel Angel Ancensio. He works on a research focused coffee farm MARS DRINKS helps fund in partnership with World Coffee Research in El Salvador. The World Coffee Research was established in 2010 as a global nonprofit by members of the coffee industry, with a mission to “grow, protect and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of those who produce it.”

MARS DRINKS is working with World Coffee Research on a three-year pilot program to make coffee plants more disease resistant and able to produce higher yields through coffee plant evolution. Our goal is to collaborate with industry leading organizations, like World Coffee Research to support coffee and black tea growing communities and be involved in project like these to improve the lives of farmers.
