Summary

This global market report forms part of the Sustainable Commodities Marketplace 2019 series, with a focus on trends in the coffee supply chain. The authors describe trends in coffee production and consumption, predicting growth in the sector fueled by increasing demand from producing countries and emerging economies, as well as increased adoption of voluntary sustainability standards (VSS) by coffee producers. Low farm profitability and increasing risks caused by climate change are identified as key challenges to meeting this higher demand. Increased consumption of VSS-compliant coffee has the potential to address environmental and social development challenges, however will require greater investments and innovative approaches to support farmers’ transition to sustainable practices, as well as greater coordination among value chain actors.
