First Step:

Start with the development of overall management skills.

This would automatically produce results on the management of quality. Quality is one of the 12 indicators analysed and is not solely considered on the development of management systems.

Management systems which I am implementing as a private consultant or I have used and/or observed as representative of Utz Kapeh foundation in Brazil

Certification processings have played a major contribution to the management systems at farm level !

How much % of farmers are in compliance with the national social&environmental laws?

How to develop quality producing systems to group of producers

First aproach to individual or group of producers is a wide overview on the following indicators:

  • Evaluation of the plantation

  • Controls of costs

  • Environmental Suitability

  • Inputs/Outputs versus yield

  • Cost of production X net income

  • Average quality produced

  • Average of prices obtained

  • Social aspects

  • Sales strategy

  • Environmental aspects

  • Investments

  • Processing equipments

Indicators have their own scale of reference based on standards observed in model coffee farms

Group analysis producers:

Same as for the individuals, however a graphical representation of the group is drawn in order to establish a working plan. The limiting factors are identified and the group can jointly reach the green zone = become economically viable. Annual analysis to evaluate progress

Most specifically regarding quality to group of producers: analysis of the processing equipments, pilot tests, points of control, cup evaluation, training... are better controlled when farmers are grouped and associated to a cooperative or to a trading channel or long term coffee relationships.
