Summary

This focuses on the sustainability of the coffee sector as demand is expected to outstrip supply, mostly due to unfavourable weather conditions, and the effect of coffee pricing. A literature review has been undertaken to highlight barriers and risks, as well as potential solutions to improve the sustainability of the sector. Some suggestions are climate adaptation and mitigation through long-term resilience planning and moving coffee production to more suitable areas; compliance with VSSs; the boosting of VSS-compliant coffee sales; meeting sustainable sourcing commitments.
