Coffee farmer registration programme launched

The Jamaica Coffee Exporters Association (JCEA) in partnership with Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Regulatory Authority (JACRA) has embarked on a National Coffee Farmer Registration and Tracking System aimed at registering all coffee farms and farmers in both the Blue Mountain and non-Blue Mountain regions.
Norman Grant, President of the JCEA, said he is in full support of the coffee farmers registration programme, as it is very important for the strategic repositioning and development of the Jamaica Coffee Industry.
In a media release on Friday, Mr. Grant said JACRA has indicated that all coffee farmers must be registered by July 31 in order to sell cherry coffee to the processors on August 1, which marks the start of the new crop year 2019/2020.
He said to date, 4,167 of the total 4,578 coffee farms were registered.
