Nespresso has launched the first coffee to be exported from South Sudan - and the first significant non-oil export - in a bid towards rebuilding the country's economy.

The Nespresso Suluja ti South Sudan coffee forms part of Nespresso’s AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program focused on improving sustainability innovation to benefit farmers in developing countries.

South Sudan has a long history of cultivating coffee but the industry has largely been destroyed following conflict in the region. Partnering with local farmers to rebuild this important industry, Nespresso and the non-profit organisation TechnoServe, have been working to revive high quality coffee production in the country since 2011 and has invested more than CHF 700,000 in reviving the coffee industry in the Yei region of the country.
