TradeRiver USA attended the annual Specialty Coffee Association of America Conference held in Atlanta, GA on April 14-17, 2016.

The conference welcomed over 10,000 attendees, including coffee growers, roasters and retailers, as well as financial services providers from around the globe. The overall purpose of the conference was to discuss a wide variety of issues such as the impact of climate change, volatility of pricing, and rising food costs on the coffee industry, as well as a chance for members to mingle and meet and greet.

Chuck Brazier, a Vice President at TradeRiver USA called the occasion an “amazing display of the depth and breadth of the Specialty Coffee Industry” and deemed it an honor for TradeRiver USA to provide its benefits to its members.
