Product innovation cannot overshadow the protection of human and environmental resources, which is why the Giuseppe and Pericle Lavazza Foundation was established in 2002.
The Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization which promotes international social projects aimed at improving the living conditions of communities of coffee farmers, from sustainable development to social and health assistance, and from initiatives for children to protecting the natural environment. The Foundation also supports countries around the world which have been affected by natural disasters, as demonstrated by the initiatives undertaken following the earthquake in the Abruzzo region in Italy, and in Thailand and Myanmar.
The Foundation collaborates with various organizations in different areas: public and private institutions, NGOs and trade associations.
In addition to supporting the communities of local producers, the Lavazza Foundation also focuses on helping children, and one of its main partners in this is the Save the Children Fund.
