The Nestlé Lipa Integrated Coffee Center (LICC), which was formally launched last week, houses nurseries for the production of Robusta coffee seedlings, a technology demonstration center for new coffee varieties and a composting facility for organic fertilizer.

The LICC is the second facility of its kind in the Philippines after the Nestlé Experimental and Demonstration Farm (NEDF) in Tagum City, Davao del Norte.

Nestlé said the facility can assist coffee farmers in improving the quality and quantity of yield.
