Coffee company Bewley’s has agreed to a $1.5 million deal with Soppexcca , a farmers co-op in Nicaragua for the supply of fair trade-certified coffee.

The Soppexcca group of 15 co-ops comprises 650 coffee producers and their families.

The development is part of a long term sustainability drive by Bewley’s, which will become Ireland’s first fully certified carbon neutral coffee company by the end of this year.

The initiative will remove over 3,500 tonnes of CO2 from the athmosphere each year according to the company.
