SCAN participated in the Speciality Coffee Association of America (SCAA) conference this spring (Seattle, April 2014). SCAN partner Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade (FAST), had kindly organized a booth, which SCAN shared. This is the most important annual international event for sustainable coffee, and it was an excellent opportunity to meet and present SCAN to the wide variety of coffee stakeholders attending the four day conference. We are now following up on those contacts and opportunities, as well as thinking about 2015, and perhaps having an expanded presence of SCAN during the SCAA to present the results of the current projects and develop future activities.
Thank you very much to FAST and for the excellent work of the SCAN volunteers, Rachel Wunderlich and Kathijo Jankowski!
