Global Coffee Platform

The Global Coffee Platform (formerly known as the 4C Association) is a membership organisation of coffee farmers, trade and industry and civil society based in Bonn, Germany. Members work jointly towards improving economic, social and environmental conditions for all who make a living in the coffee sector.

The Global Coffee Platform is founded on a voluntary Code of Conduct comprising basic social, environmental and economic practices in coffee production, processing and trading. The Code is designed to trigger a process of continuous improvement towards sustainability.

Verification is free for farmers and covered through membership fees. A support network provides access to training programmes, promotes good agricultural and management practices, facilitates information exchange and strengthens the self-organisation of farmers.
