The event will bring together high-level representatives of ICO member countries, senior executives of the 14 private sector companies who are signatories to the London Declaration, as well as other private coffee sector associations and representatives from the ICO’s Private Sector Consultative Board.

“Three years have passed since the 1st CEO & Global Leaders Forum (CGLF), held in London during the 125th Session of the International Coffee Council (ICC) where the historic London Declaration (LD) on price levels, price volatility and the long-term sustainability of the coffee sector was presented” says ICO’s executive director Vanúsia Nogueira in a statement introducing the event.
