Vision & Mission

Judith de Boer

SCTA Next Gen Lead

The SCTA Next Gen is an initiative developed under the umbrella of the Swiss Coffee Trade Association. Its aim is to create a dynamic network of young talents in its sector, provide learning opportunities and foster exchanges.

With that goal in mind the SCTA Next Gen is providing a platform for the ‘Next Gen’, keen to develop the necessary skills and manage tomorrow’s coffee world. The accessibility of information today requires us to work as teams, and we believe in the positiveness coming out of change!
