The Coffee Barometer 2020 looks specifically at the role of the main private sector players. The coffee supply chain is closely tied to the top ten multinational roasters that represent over 35 percent of global trade in green coffee and engages millions of smallholders and workers.
Contributing to the resilience of smallholder coffee farmers is imperative to create a sustainable coffee sector. To understand the current state of voluntary sustainability initiatives from roasters and traders, we take a closer look at their main successes and failures.
These are the findings of the new Coffee Barometer – the latest report from a collective of organizations in the sustainability field; Conservation International, Hivos, Oxfam Belgium and Solidaridad, and produced by Ethos Agriculture.
