AMARTA II Coffee Stakeholders Meeting

AMARTA II Coffee Stakeholders Meeting
(Pertemuan Pemangku Kepentingan Kopi AMARTA II)

The world's need on coffee increases significantly. For it, the production and quality of coffee must be increased significantly by creating a better coffee value chain starting from producers to drinkers as the end-users. There were some success that had been achieved in Indonesia especially in North Sumatra Province, but there are still much more to do in the future for the sake of sustainability of supply and quality. The action programs will be formulated in the next step by ACDIVOCA, the winner of tender of AMARTA II Project. Farther meetings are needed to hear what activities will be offered by ACDIVOCA. We all are keen to know. Let's wait the invitation letters from ACDIVOCA
