The Secretary of Production and Agroenergy, Manoel Vicente Fernandes Bertone, and the Head of the Coffee Department, Robério Oliveira Silva, of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply of Brazil visited the ICO where they met with the Executive Director, Néstor Osorio, and the Head of Operations, José Sette. During the meeting, they examined the state of the world coffee market and concluded that the current tight demand/supply situation is likely to persist in the near- to medium-term. The ratification of the 2007 International Coffee Agreement by the Brazilian Congress was also discussed. The Brazilian representatives stated their confidence in the successful conclusion of the ratification process and their country’s appreciation for the indispensable role of the ICO in the world coffee economy.

1 October is #InternationalCoffeeDay.
This year we have chosen a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it. To find out more visit the dedicated International Coffee Day website.
