Reducing Ochratoxin A in Coffee - www.coffee-ota.org

20 May 2005
The FAO announced at the recent ICO Council session that the Reducing Ochratoxin A in Coffee - www.coffee-ota.org is now operational.

Ochratoxin A (OTA) can be found in a small percentage of coffee produced in many different countries and the FAO is the Executing Agency for a major ICO-sponsored project to eliminate or reduce the formation of moulds which can generate this mycotoxin. The website will be of use to all concerned or interested about OTA, and how best to prevent, or reduce, its incidence in coffee.
