In Nicaragua, coffee is mainly produced on small-scale farms where temporary or seasonal work, weak remuneration, subcontracting, migrant workers, and child labor are likely to exist. In recent years, corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities have been encouraged to help improve conditions for workers and work toward the elimination of child labor.

The integration of social factors in supply management within CSR is one of the key issues for food companies (brands, roasters, etc.) to address in order to fight against child labor and give hope to young workers’ future employability.
