Invited panelists include key legislators including those representing coffee producing regions in Hawai’i, HDOA officials, UH CTAHR officials, plus USDA and other researchers and regulators.
The purpose of the event is to discuss coffee industry priorities, with an emphasis on Coffee Leaf Rust. We also expect HDOA to highlight its CBB/CLR subsidy program.
Panelists will have 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 will host a round table discussion among the participants with the goal of establishing actionable items that support Hawaii’s coffee industry. The invited audience will be comprised of coffee industry stakeholders, including HCA members. You will have the opportunity to submit written questions during this session.
