RIO DE JANEIRO — Nespresso, the maker of coffee brewing pods and machines, found child labour at three farms where it buys coffee in Guatemala, the company said on Thursday, also announcing it implemented a prevention plan to ward off potential further abuse. The Nestle-owned coffee giant uncovered child labor at three of the 374 coffee farms where it buys coffee in Guatemala’s central-southern Fraijanes region, it said in a statement.
