The German Coffee Association is the interest group for companies and organisations in Germany, who trade in, process or otherwise do business with coffee. In our work we bring together the “large” and “small” of the German coffee industry and support a friendly and fair exchange of views on pre-competitive topics. Communications are subject to antitrust rules, which are set out in the German Coffee Association’s Compliance Programme and are binding for all event attendees.
Since 1969 the German Coffee Association has supported positive conditions in the coffee industry and promotes and protects the general interests of its member companies.
Every member - whether small company, medium-sized business or large corporation - can benefit from the services offered by the association and has a say in the association.
Further information can be found in the Charter of the German Coffee Association:
One of the fundamental principles of the German Coffee Association is strict acceptance of and compliance with the valid antitrust rules at national and international level. To this end, the German Coffee Association installed a compliance programme. Adherence to the rules set out in these guidelines is a requirement for participation in the committees and in events of the German Coffee Association.
