Letter from the president


Welcome to our website!

My name is Nicolas A. Tamari and I have the honour of being the current President of the Swiss Coffee Trade Association.

If you are visiting the site and you are not involved in coffee, you may be surprised to learn that coffee is one of the most traded commodities in the world and is produced in over 60 countries.The SCTA is currently comprised of a total of 35 members approximately, mainly industry and trade.

The Association’s major aim is to protect and promote the interests of its members within Switzerland.

Industry members range from local roasters to divisions of worldwide manufacturers. Likewise, our trade members include those solely supplying the smaller roasters to the multinational houses.

Our Statutes allow membership of companies not directly involved in trading or manufacturing and we therefore welcome those involved in such as financing, risk management, insurance, transportation, warehousing as well as other associations with an interest in coffee.

Although Switzerland is a relatively small consumer, volume wise our members handle in excess of half of world coffee exports from producing countries.


We hope to provide some interesting information about coffee including its history, harvesting and processing, as well as manufacturing. Also, we shall of course elaborate on the objects and activities of the Association.

It is imperative that we ensure that our voice is heard in the appropriate forums and, where necessary, acted upon. We have been giving much thought and consideration as to the future strategy of the Association and I anticipate that this year we will make a decision how best to proceed.

Our ninth annual forum and gala dinner will take place in Geneva on 11th & 12th of October 2018. A cocktail reception will be held at Beau Rivage Hotel on the evening of October 11th. October 11th and 12th will be dedicated to meetings, networking and a debate at Intercontinental Hotel. Friday night the Gala dinner will occur at Geneva Arena.

Sponsorship of the event is open to all, whether members or non-members. Please email info@sc-ta.ch if this is of interest to you.

If I can be of assistance to you on any other matter please do not hesitate to get in touch.
