Samuda to address issues affecting coffee farmers

Published:Monday | October 2, 2017 | 12:42 PM

Agriculture and Commerce Minister Karl Samuda is to outline a plan of action to address issues affecting coffee farmers.

Samuda has called a press conference for 10 tomorrow morning.

The most vexing issue is the price being paid to coffee farmers.

Coffee farmers have expressed disappointment with the $6,000 they are being paid per box of Blue Mountain Coffee beans from marketing companies.

They recently staged a protest at the ministry demanding Samuda’s intervention.
