Congress Program


Time for talking about sustainability in the field of coffee business.  

Every player in the coffee value chain has its own requirements and challenges. However, it needs cooperation across all of these players to improve sustainable behaviour, methods and products within the coffee business.
From 06 to 08 June, the "World of Coffee" (WoC), one of the world's most important coffee events, takes place in Berlin. At the WoC and around this international coffee event, the "who is who" of the coffee industry will meet. An extraordinary chance to discuss the important topic of sustainability in coffee business with people from various disciplines and business areas.
With the "International Coffee Congress on Sustainability" (05 June 2019), the German Coffee Association provides its members, companies and organisations from all over the (coffee) world with a platform to inform themselves about current and future challenges, processes and projects in the sustainability sector.

20 top-class international speakers will give insights into this important and omnipresent topic. In addition an exhibition will allow participants to broaden their knowledge in the field of sustainability. Finally, the congress intends to foster networking among coffee traders, coffee makers, logistic companies, laboratories, NGO’s, and many more – to improve the cooperation for more sustainability in the coffee industry and the overall business relationships. We are pleased to offer you this platform together with our partners and supporters. Join us in Berlin to bring sustainability in coffee business to the next level.
