Invited panelists included key legislators including those representing coffee producing regions in Hawai’i, HDOA officials, UH CTAHR officials, plus USDA PBARC, SHAC and HARC.
The purpose of the event was to discuss coffee industry priorities, with an emphasis on Coffee Leaf Rust.
Panelists had an opportunity to introduce themselves and their organization and give an overview of their past and potential contributions. Following this portion of the event we hosted a round table discussion among the participants with the goal of establishing actionable items that support Hawaii’s coffee industry. The invited audience were comprised of coffee industry stakeholders, including HCA members, who had the opportunity to submit written questions during this session.
