The State of Sustainable Coffee: A study of twelve major markets

By Daniele Giovannucci on October 16, 2003
The State of Sustainable Coffee provides a glimpse of the potential of using standards-based supply chain management and eco-labelling as tools for improving the terms of trade and environmental conditions facing poverty-stricken coffee producers in the South. The study provides an overview of the specific features of, and market conditions facing, organic, shade grown and fair trade coffee in 12 markets across Europe and Japan. The book was published by IISD, the International Coffee Organization and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development with the support of the World Bank and the International Development Research Centre.
