ICO holds first-ever Coffee Public-Private Task Force Meeting

30 June 2020

This week the International Coffee Organization (ICO) convened the first-ever Coffee Public-Private Taskforce Meeting. High-level decision-makers from across the global coffee industry met to discuss action-orientated ways of addressing the key issues in the coffee sector such as persistently low coffee prices and the impact of covid-19.

“We are here today because we all believe that only by working together – coffee exporting and importing countries, public and private sector, civil society and knowledge-based organizations - can we make the coffee sector resilient, sustainable and prosperous for all the parties involved parties. This is something no other commodity or industry has ever done: to start working together, public and private, on the same level of engagement and responsibility,” said Jose Sette, Executive Director of the ICO at the opening of the Task Force meeting.
