Letter from the president


Dear Reader,

Welcome to the SCTA (Swiss Coffee Trade Association) website.

Green coffee is being produced in more than 60 countries around the tropical/subtropical belt of the world and is one of the most important agricultural commodities traded globally.

Switzerland is one the largest trading places for green coffee. The 40 plus active members of the SCTA represent a volume of more than 50 % of global coffee exports. The members are mainly Swiss based trading and industry companies. The association is also open to non-Swiss based companies being actively engaged in coffee trading, processing/roasting, but also as a service provider to our industry like warehouse keepers, financial institutions and insurance companies. We always welcome new members.

The SCTA is representing the interests of the green coffee merchants in Switzerland, but is also globally and nationally well connected to other associations and institutions. Most of the SCTA members are internationally operating companies, but some are also smaller companies focused on supplying the Swiss market.

The SCTA is helping its members to address regulatory and legislative questions. The association endorsed the UN Guiding Principles for Human Rights in 2018 and encourages its members to implement those. You will also find the code of conduct of the SCTA on our website.

You can direct any questions or feedback to our secretary general Michael von Luehrte at michaelvonluehrte@sc-ta.ch.

Nicolas A. Tamari
SCTA President
