Who is ACTA and what does it do?

ACTA represents the Australian coffee industry by assisting and improving the standards, promoting the image of coffee and provides a platform for networking and furthering education.

ACTA liaises with the media and regulative bodies on all aspects of the industry.


We regularly communicate industry issues with media e.g: – Coffee news – Magazines – Misleading and incorrect commentary – Fair trade – Rainforest Alliance – 4C common code for the coffee community – Market movements – Green Bean pricing.


ACTA addresses industry issues with authorities e.g: – GST – Parchment (AQIS) – EPA standards – Australian Customs requirements.


ACTA’s involvement led to the successful negotiations of the exclusion of coffee from GST; Instrumental in the reduction of duties on the importation of coffee.

The united voice for the Australian coffee industry since 1940

We provide experienced
judges (independent) for Royal Agricultural Society’s coffee awards.
