AFCA Conference and Exhibition – February 2019, Kigali, Rwanda Coffee Barometer 2018 (S.Panhuysen, J.Pierrot, June 2018) The report says that without significant efforts to adapt production to climate change, increase transparency in the value chain and improve social conditions on farms, global production will not be able to keep pace with rising demand. According to the Barometer, investors are spending billions in coffee company acquisitions and mergers, but coffee production on the ground is under threat from all sides.
