From 4th to 7th of May the "Best of Panama" event will be held at the site of the Festival of Flowers and Coffee in Bouquet, where an announcement will be made of the best domestic coffee from the last harvest.
The goal of the Speciality Coffee Association of Panama (SCAP) is to promote coffee from Panama internationally, and its origin. "The products selected by a panel of international judges, will then be auctioned on the internet, on June 11, 2013, with the participation of buyers from America, Asia, Europe and Oceania", reported Panamaamerica.com.pa.
Planation owners will present a formal request to the Ministry for Trade to obtain the first rules of origin for Panamanian coffee grains.
Rules of origin provide guarantees of quality and specific geographical origin to consumers.
"Panama is committed to the EU to providing rules of origin for the country's coffee thereby adding value to the grain, comments Francisco Serracín, the project's manager on behalf of an association of Panamanian coffee producers and exporters," reports Prensa.com.
CECA mills and exports high quality green coffee from every region of Costa Rica, supplying specialty coffee industries of the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.
