Honduran Coffee Trust receives $39 million

This trust is capitalized by a $9 contribution per quintal of gold coffee produced and acquired by exporters, torrefactores (roasters) and intermediaries.

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

In order to have correct data, Ihcafe coffee authorities ask exporters and roasters to document, free of cost, coffee production acquired directly or indirectly from coffee producers.

"We have our data base of around 85,000 coffee growers nationally," Flores affirmed.

The contributions for the 2007-2008 harvest was the most effective compared to previous years, according to Ihcafe authorities due to the fact that the sector is using more banking services.

Flores added that "the program works because each producer opens his bank account and then the information is compared to the deposits via a transfer to the banks of the trust.
