Samuda to address issues affecting coffee farmers
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.
