Event Details

“International Coffee Day at the Brazilian Embassy, London”

The International Coffee Organization has chosen a very special theme for this year’s International Coffee Day celebrations: “Women in Coffee”. Women play a crucial role in the global coffee value chain, from bean to cup. Up to 70% of labour in coffee production is provided by women and around 25% of coffee farms worldwide are managed by female growers. However, compared to men, female farmers face constraints in accessing production factors, markets, finance and extension services, resulting in a gender gap in coffee yield and income.

We are delighted to invite you to discuss the participation of women in the coffee industry, learn more about successful examples of female coffee entrepreneurs in Brazil and explore what we can do to foster gender equality across the coffee value chain – all while enjoying a delicious cup of coffee, coffee-based drinks and canapés.
