The fourth Producer & Roaster Forum (PRF) will be held in Copán, Honduras on 25th & 26th March 2021. As one of the most important coffee forums in a producing country, the event facilitates relationships across the supply chain and prioritises impact for attendees.
Lectures and speakers have been planned to represent the global coffee community and meet coffee producers’ needs. The Producer & Roaster Forum worked closely with the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE), producers, and exporters to gauge which topics would be most useful. An application and nominations process was also held to ensure that the event will be inclusive and fully representative of the coffee community.
We are in close contact with our in-country partners in Honduras, and are monitoring local laws and regulations and international health guidance every single day.
Our priority is to minimise the risk of exposure to Covid-19. If the safety of attendees cannot be guaranteed and hosting the event is inadvisable under guidance at the time, meaning the physical PRF event cannot take place in Honduras, ticket holders will be able to attend the Virtual PRF instead.
We will be providing regular updates related to this, and will be issuing a full update on 1 February 2021.
We understand the value PRF provides in connecting producers to international coffee roasters. As part of our plans for PRF 2021, producers can interact with buyers through:
Attending the physical PRF event.
Virtual PRF. The platform we are using has an outward focus on networking, and offers face-to-face video communication between all attendees. It also offers interactive networking tables and a speed networking platform.
Producer Roaster Matchmaking. See more information here.
